FESTIVE community spirit was alive and well in Kelty this year for the Christmas lights switch-on.

The annual turning on of the Christmas lights was a treat for the village with two local primary pupils selected to help Santa on Friday.

Bethany Anderson, 8, and her little brother, Bobby, 6, picked the lucky ticket to turn on the lights this year.
