‘The turning on of the Christmas lights.’
Lockerbie main street was closed from 1pm to 6pm. There were stalls selling all kinds of Christmas fayre lining the street. All Saint’s had a stall selling Christmas decorated logs, Christmas Cards, Knitted Hats, and of course our very own ‘Marmalade’, Warm Mulled Apple Juice was served, and very nice it was too. We also had a ‘treasure hunt’ game based on a map of Lockerbie, which was very popular.
Maggie and I spent a couple of afternoons decorating log been . I have to say there was a lot of giggling, and coffee drinking, and maybe far too much fun! The end product was great and the logs sold well.
It was a cold day but dry, again we had a lot of fun and raised over a £150 which was great.
And then on came the LIGHTS
