IT is that time of year again, and it is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.

And a local community organisation have held their annual Xmas lights switch-on event.

It was a very cold, crisp, December evening, but the Robert Smith Court Community Group, in Lumphinnans, had a record turnout.

But the wee star of the show was two-year old, Murraigh Donaldson, who switched on the lights, after a customary loud countdown.

Said the Community Group’s, Mark Davies: “A big well done to Murraigh - he did us proud.

“After the lights went on around our amazing courtyard Christmas tree, we were hosted by Gary Fleming, and the Lumphinnans Bowling Club, for some Xmas music, mince pies and gluhwein, along with some exceptional hot and tasty stovies, cooked by our very own Danielle Marshall.

“We also took the opportunity to present the RSC Resident of the Year Award to Graham Hart.

"He was not able to attend this year, but his son Ruraidh accepted the Shona Hay Memorial Rose Bowl on Graham's behalf.

“A huge well done and congratulations to Graham. He has been a reliable and steady hand in our community; always there to lend a hand and support the work of our Community Group”.

Added Mark: “Another fantastic RSC event - and another example of why RSC is such a great place to live.

"We have had a good 2023 - and we hope 2024 can be even better, plus a big thanks to Councillor Lockhart, who continues to offer our community the most amazing support."
