Peterhead Christmas Lights
The 2008 Peterhead Christmas Lights will be switched on Thursday 27 November. The day will see street entertainment from 4:30pm which includes local DJ Tommy James, the Young at Heart Group, Peterhead Choral Society and Waves Radio. Footballer Neale Cooper will switch on the Peterhead Christmas tree lights.
It was feared that the Peterhead Christmas Lights
would not be on display in 2007 after they were vandalised in 2006 only hours after going up. Fortunately cash was donated from the Common Good Fund in Peterhead so that shoppers could once more enjoy some Christmas cheer. £5000 was given from the fund by Peterhead Councillors to the Peterhead Christmas Lights fundraiser Mr Davie Roy who is head of Light the Toon.
Fundraising for the 2008 Peterhead Christmas Lights will start in January 2008
Elgin Christmas Lights
Visitors to Elgin in 2007 may be forgiven for thinking Christmas is celebrated throughout the year. In an effort to save about £4000 a year the Elgin Town Centre Benevolent Trust have kept up the Elgin Christmas Lights all year round to save the cost of taking them down in January and putting them back up in December. This controversial cost cutting scheme has been praised and also criticised by the people of Elgin. The Elgin Town Centre Benevolent Trust needs to raise approximately £30,000 a year to display the Elgin Christmas lights. This initiative saves them the fee that they have to pay to Moray Council to take down the lights.
