WHAT a dazzling night in Maybole for the big
switch-on of the town’s Christmas lights. Events
focused around the town hall, where the main
illuminations are based. Leading lights in the
switch-on were youngster Toni McLaughlin and
Aidan McQuillan, the King and Queen of Carrick.
They were helped by Santa, Magic Malky and and
local politicians. Maybole Pipe Band led Santa’s
Sleigh up the High Street as excitement built
for the switch-on. Carrick Round Table
generously provided a sleigh for Santa, so he
could keep his own ready for Christmas Eve. And
there was room on board for the King and Queen,
and other VIPs. Entertainment in the town hall
included a live band and a disco for the kids.
