MOUSE­HOLE CHRIST­MAS LIGHTS

Cornwall Life - - COUNTRYSIDE LIFE -

It’s hard to be­lieve, but this year Mouse­hole cel­e­brates 55 years since the first dis­play of Christ­mas lights in the lit­tle fish­ing vil­lage when a lo­cal artist or­gan­ised a cam­paign to brighten up the har­bour at Christ­mas. This year the Mouse­hole lights will be turned on at 6.30pm on 16 De­cem­ber and there will be an open-air carol ser­vice at the en­trance to the North Quay with the Caro­laire Choir, made up of mem­bers of the Mouse­hole Male Voice Choir, Mouse­hole Methodist Church and friends from the com­mu­nity to­gether with the Pen­deen Sil­ver Band. The lights are on ev­ery evening un­til 4 Jan­uary but will be dimmed on 19 De­cem­ber be­tween 8pm and 9pm, as they are ev­ery year, to re­mem­ber the 16 peo­ple who died dur­ing a 1981 storm, in­clud­ing eight vol­un­teers of Pen­deen lifeboat the Solomon Browne.
