Christmas Light Up
As Tiree’s nights grow colder, darker and unfortunately, wetter, it was time to chase the winter blues away with the annual light up of the Christmas tree at the Tiree Business Centre.
Though there was a slight mishap with the outdoor plugs right before the evening, Gerard McGoogan and Steve Nagy came to the rescue by fixing the lights fixture plug.
It was a wonderful evening with mince pies, chocolate biscuits, juice and mulled wine provided for free to the community by Tiree Trust. Christmas jingles were played over the speakers to get everyone into the holiday spirit, with some live performances between songs by the Tiree Pipe Band.
Following the excited countdown by the attendees, the lights were turned on to reveal not only the tree, but a new addition to the lights in the form of three reindeer. Santa Claus also paid a visit, handing out candy canes to the children.
Louise Reid would like to thank Gerard and Steve for their help with the repairs to ensure the night went without a hitch, Cameron Smith and Stuart Carr for building the set up, Marg Worsley for assisting with putting up the lights around the business centre, the Tiree Pipe Band for their performance, Santa for making a special visit despite his busy schedule and Shari for being an elf.
