As Glasgow Road festive lights were quietly switched on remotely today (without any outdoor event) and High Blantyre’s lights already on earlier this week, we decided to pay a visit this evening to neighbouring EK Village for their Christmas switch on event.
A great event, well organised and in a beautiful, traditional setting at the Village. The EK lights were switched on at 5pm by the Provost with many people enjoying the entertainment, fair rides and stalls.
Back in Blantyre, both High Blantyre and Stonefield Park Christmas Tree Lights and the Street Lights on Glasgow Road and Main Street are now switched on, a week or so earlier than usual.
Glasgow’s George Square was also switched on tonight. It’s certainly beginning to feel VERY festive!
