There was a good turn out of local children and their
parents last Friday evening for the big switch on of Maybole’s
Christmas lights. Maybole Pipe Band led Santa’s sleigh from the
Carnegie Library up the High Street to the Town Hall. Accompanying
Santa were this year’s King of Carrick, Jack Wallace, Cathy Jamieson
MSP and Councillor Alan Murray.
Councillor Murray welcomed everyone to the switch on
what was a fine night and Ms Jamieson comprehensively thanked
everyone who had helped in any way to make the event such a success.
This included the Pipe Band, the community council, community
association, Carrick Round Table, Maybole & District Business
Association, the Youth Action Team, South Ayrshire Council,
Strathclyde Police, Scott White and Stephen Brownlie from Alfred
MCAlpine, Jim Bryant of GAB audio engineers who helped with the
sound system, community wardens and Welltrees Holiday Club who ran
the disco afterwards.
