Festival of Light Illuminates Canal Bridge

The Canal and River Trust celebrated Diwali and Bandi Chhor by lighting up the historic Galton Bridge this weekend gone.

The Festival of Light was staged beneath Galton Bridge in Smethwick on Saturday night. This was organised by the Canal and River Trust, and Lingwood Security Management provided Security Officers for the event. The light shows were an opportunity for residents to come and join in.

Galton Bridge is an amazing structure, and this was an evening to come down and spend time with family and friends.

Members of the Eco-Sikh UK took part in the festival. They try to combat climate change, global warming, and biodiversity loss. Candles were lit on the canal to mark Diwali – the festival of lights.

Our Security Officers were asked to ensure public safety along the canal and to protect the equipment set up on site for the show.

We had excellent feedback from the client who commented ‘The Security Officers were professional and did their duty very well. Thank you very much.’
