Residents in Lenzie are getting set to kick-off the festive season in style.

The annual Christmas lights switch-on event takes place this year on Saturday December 6.

A spokesperson for Lenzie Community Council said: “Saturday, December 6 will be another festive occasion for the people of Lenzie when our Christmas lights will be switched on by our 2014 Gala Queen, Emily Dick, formerly from Holy Family Primary School.

“But before that there will be carols in front of Lenzie Old Parish Church from 5pm and all Lenzie residents are invited to come along and join in.

“Kirkintilloch Kelvin Brass will be providing the music and the Lenzie Christian Fellowship will be there to help us along, to make sure we manage a really rousing rendition of all our favourite carols.

“To ensure everyone is feeling festive in the run up to Christmas, we will be joined in person by Father Christmas, who has promised to arrive in good time for the official switching on of the Christmas Lights at 5.30pm prompt.

“After the official proceedings, refreshments will be available in the church hall. Everyone is most welcome to come along and warm up with some tea or coffee.”

Lenzie Community Council hopes lots of people will come along and join in the fun on this important day for the community.

The spokesperson added: “It goes without saying that we are very grateful to East Dunbartonshire Council for their continuing support for this event - so popular with Lenzie children and adults alike - in these difficult economic times.”
