It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Corpach and Kilmallie Christmas Lights Group will provide some added sparkle this weekend.

On Friday, December 3, the group are holding a Switch-on Ceremony at the Christmas tree.

Two young people, Lilia and Olly from Banavie Primary School, have been nominated by their head teacher, Mrs Kerry Young, to switch on the lights this year.

Mrs Young said: ‘Olly and Lilia are hardworking, cheerful pupils and are a credit to Banavie Primary School.

‘They are both very worthy of the honour of switching on the Christmas lights.’

Following the Switch-on everyone is invited to Kilmallie Community Centre for tea, coffee and home baking provided by the very worthwhile local charity, STAR for Harris.

Tanya Ross, spokesperson for STAR for Harris said: ‘Sadly, this popular community event was unable to take place last year because of Covid.

We hope that there will be a good turnout of residents, children and their parents to the event this year to welcome the start of the festive season.’

The Switch-on is at 7pm on Friday, December 3 and people should remember to bring a torch.
