Friday 29/11/19: -Thank you to all who came out tonight to the Commercial Hotel for the switching on of Christmas Lights. The children under the supervision of Graham were amazing and played Christmas Carols for us all to sing to. Well done to everyone – Can we please book you all for next year!!!!! Santa arrived and gave out sweets to the children then switched on the Christmas Lights.
Last year the weather was so bad that we had to stay indoors so tonight it was decided to be indoors and Santa lit the Christmas tree inside. Unfortunately the planned walk to the outside tree did not take place as the main connector on the Balintore lights failed. Hopefully we will have it sorted very soon and Balintore will be lit up.
A collection tonight raised £70.64 this will go in the kitty for next year, hopefully throughout the year we will raise some more and we can purchase some more street lights. Pictures were taken tonight by Linda Vass and Norma. Norma has put them together in a small video which will appear shortly!!!. Hope you all enjoyed yourselves – hopefully we can get a group together to make improvements for next year. Please get in touch with Norma through this page.
Please get in touch with Norma if any pictures need to be removed from the video – this can be done immediately requested. Special thanks to everyone who helped last night, Coral for helping with arrangements and Sandra for doing collection etc.,
We are all looking forward to a fun evening with
Music supplied by ‘Hilton Primary School’.
Christmas Light Up
We would have been unable to hold this event this year without a very kind donation of £160 from Seaboard Cares which enabled us to purchase the 2 Christmas Trees. Last year the trees and new lights for both trees were purchased by the Seaboard Gala and previous year trees were funded by Seaboard Hall.
The Christmas Street Lights also belong to the villages and although SSE have over last number of years put these up for us along with local help, these lights have to be maintained or replaced by the Community. To date we have been very fortunate in that Sangster Electricians have again this year checked out and repaired the lights at no cost to the Community.
If we wish to continue having this annual event we require to fund raise over the next year and would ask you all to give this some thought as we go forward.
I AM SURE THAT YOU HAVE ALL NOTICED THE NEW DEFIBRILLATOR THAT IS NOW PLACED OUTSIDE THE SEABOARD CENTRE.
Since installation this year the ‘Defib’ has been taken out to Emergencies on 4 occasions.
We now have 2 ‘defibs’’ within our villages, a tremendous bonus for when and if required.
DO YOU KNOW HOW TO ACCESS THE DEFIBRILLATOR?
DO YOU KNOW HOW TO USE THE DEFIBRILLATOR?
These are just some of the questions that can be answered if you come along to the
Training Session on the 30th September 2019
at 7pm – 9pm
