Vi­brant cen­tre good for us all

Evening Times - - NEWS -

THE Christ­mas tree is in Ge­orge Square and work­ers are putting fi­nal touches to the dec­o­ra­tions.

I have child­hood mem­o­ries of com­ing into town to see the lights, which we got to view from the up­per win­dows of the City Cham­bers be­cause my Papa was a councillor.

Trips into town are still spe­cial at this time of the year as, when dark­ness falls and the lights come on, the city gets an ex­tra jolt of en­ergy.

Today we re­port on shop clo­sures, and I would urge read­ers to come into town, sup­port our city cen­tre and en­joy the wide range of op­por­tu­ni­ties on of­fer. Gra­ham Shields Editor
