Cal­lan­der gets into the spirit of Christ­mas

Stirling Observer - - FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY -

Cal­lan­der is firmly in fes­tive mood fol­low­ing the town’s Christ­mas light switch-on at the week­end.

An­caster Square was the lo­ca­tion for the win­ter tra­di­tion as the town lit up as part of the Win­ter­fest cel­e­bra­tions on Satur­day af­ter­noon.

Santa led the Round Ta­ble’s pa­rade down Main Street to the square where a huge crowd gath­ered for the big switch-on.

The hon­our of flick­ing the switch to light up the town fell to the town’s Cit­i­zen of the Year, Colin Clark.

Cal­lan­der Brass were also on hand to play a host of fes­tive songs.

The event was or­gan­ised by Cal­lan­der Com­mu­nity Devel­op­ment Trust.

The large Christ­mas tree was do­nated by Cam­bus­more Es­tate with a num­ber of traders from the town pro­vid­ing mince pies and mulled wine.

Sup­port fi­nance came from the Cal­lan­der Co­op­er­a­tive Com­mu­nity Fund.

Cal­lan­der fire­fight­ers helped to put up and dec­o­rate the tree.

Bol­lards in the square were also dec­o­ra­tively decked out in Christ­mas themed yarn livery.

Young­sters also donned their finest fancy dress for the big day.
