Xmas Lights

STRANRAER is set to be lit up as never before this Christmas, the "Free Press" can reveal.

The biggest and brightest display of Christmas lights on record is planned, as organisers attempt to build on last year's memorable efforts.

Then, the festive lights were transformed from those devastated by the Boxing Day storms in 1998.

This year, however, funding has been attracted from a variety of sources which will not only ensure the same brilliant display of lights in the town centre and Agnew Park as last year, but that the display will also be expanded to include parts of the town not previously lit up.

In the wake of a tough year for the area, after which the foot-and-mouth crisis will linger long in the memory, cash amounting to almost £25,000 has been secured to ensure a yuletide lift.

Funding will come from the Common Good Fund (£10,000); Small Towns' Initiative (£5000); Wigtown West Area Committee (£5975) and the Community Resources Committee (£2259).
