LET THERE BE LIGHT!

The countdown to Christ­mas has of­fi­cially kicked off in New­mains.

The vil­lage’s Christ­mas lights were turned on as a large crowd gath­ered at The Cross to see the 2018 Gala Court, led by Gala Queen Olivia Neil­son, turn on the lights.

And there was plenty of fun for all the fam­ily to en­joy be­fore the big switch on.

As al­ways the fes­tiv­i­ties were or­gan­ised by the New­mains and Dis­trict Gala Com­mit­tee.

Gala sec­re­tary Mary Gil­fil­lan said: “We were re­ally pleased with the turnout and ev­ery­one seemed to en­joy them­selves.

“The turnout has in­spired us to look at mak­ing the switch-on even big­ger next year.

“It was great to see all of this year’s Gala Court there. They all played their part.

“For us it was great be­cause we have a few new com­mit­tee mem­bers who have some great ideas so look for­ward to more ex­cit­ing events in the run-up to the 2019 gala day!”
