Christ­mas spirit hits West End

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS - Pic­ture: Gareth Jen­nings.

It’s of­fi­cially Christ­mas time in the West End of Dundee.

Fes­tive lights were switched on last night at Seabraes.

Chil­dren, in­clud­ing six­month old Flora Kirk, pic­tured, from Dundee, who is about to ex­pe­ri­ence her first Christ­mas, met Santa Claus.

Santa also handed out gifts to young­sters, sup­ported by Dundee Round Ta­ble, stok­ing ex­cite­ment for the big day.

Those who braved the wind and rain to see the il­lu­mi­na­tions go on were also treated to a dis­play of fire­works.

The switch-on was pre­ceded by a con­cert in Dundee West Church, fea­tur­ing lo­cal chil­dren.

West End coun­cil­lor Fraser Macpherson said: “This was a su­perb night as part of the West End Christ­mas Fort­night and shows the great com­mu­nity spirit in the West End.”
