Fes­tive fun at the Xmas lights

Lennox Herald - - THE TICKET -

I had a fan­tas­tic time last week­end with theYour Ra­dio roadshow team, in­clud­ing John Scott and Derek McIn­tyre, cel­e­brat­ing the start of the Christ­mas sea­son with thou­sands of our lovely lis­ten­ers.

It was the big­gest and best crowd ever on Satur­day at Clyde Shop­ping Cen­tre, Cly­de­bank with an amazing line up of per­form­ers fromThe Swing­cats who per­form swing/ jazz, Scot Soul from BBC’s Pitch Bat­tle,The Zig Zag rock and pop choir to Ge­orge and Peppa.

Thank you to ev­ery­one for mak­ing it such a special day.

On Sun­day we were joined by more than 38,000 peo­ple at Loch Lomond Shores.

Hi to wee Aaron and his mum Lisa Hunter.

They were rais­ing money and aware­ness forThe ROHHAD As­so­ci­a­tion.

Sadly, Aaron suf­fers from the dis­ease but he was on great form at the gig and was telling me about his new friend Iron­man.

Yes, movie star Robert Downey Jnr is now a fam­ily friend and calls Aaron from Hol­ly­wood and has sur­prises lined up to help the char­ity.

As a dad him­self, Robert wants to help Aaron’s mum Lisa and the fam­ily.

Thanks to Aaron, Santa and my wee boy Jonathan for switch­ing on the lights for 2017.

The at­mos­phere was elec­tric and po­lice had to ac­tu­ally close the roads to stop more peo­ple com­ing as it was the busiest Christ­mas ever at the Shores.

Why not pop along for more free fes­tive fam­ily fun this Satur­day in Alexan­dria and Sun­day in Dum­bar­ton?

The road­shows start each day at 1.30pm with the lights go­ing on around 5.15pm.

The week­end gigs are packed full of lo­cal tal­ent in­clud­ing ma­gi­cian Scott Cuth­bert­son, singers Ally McNelly, Jodie Knight, G-Side,The Lo­gans and Singer Sta­tion.

Dance acts from Pre­mier Dance, Cen­tre Stage and even panto from the kids at Dance Off.

It’s set to be an­other amazing week­end of live lo­cal en­ter­tain­ment and fes­tive fam­ily fun.

I hope to see you this week­end.

How do you fancy win­ning a fab­u­lous di­a­mond worth £800?

Just go to our web­site www.your­ra­dio.scot and you could pick this fan­tas­tic prize courtesy of our friends at McNeils Jew­ellers based at Oak Mall, Greenock.

They say di­a­monds are a girls best friend and there’s no doubt you would be on Santa’s good list and it re­ally would make Christ­mas sparkle.

Re­mem­ber, you can only en­ter on­line so don’t miss your chance to en­ter this amazing com­pe­ti­tion.

Best of luck.

The iconic He­lens­burgh Clock Tower – which is lo­cated in the cen­tre of the town – has been pur­chased by The Tower Dig­i­tal Arts Cen­tre, a lo­cal char­ity at the heart of the com­mu­nity.

The Tower Dig­i­tal Arts Cen­tre – which is a con­verted church in the heart of He­lens­burgh – hopes the of­fer­ing will act as a hub for res­i­dents and at­tract more vis­i­tors to the sea­side town.

Staff and vol­un­teers at the cen­tre are ded­i­cated to de­vel­op­ing the dig­i­tal and cul­tural econ­omy of the town and al­ready run a suc­cess­ful cinema and work­shops in the area.
