MAYBOLE had a night of festive fun as the town lights were switched on.

Held at the Town Hall, Provost Helen Moonie and current Gala King and Queen of Queen of Carrick Kerr Stevenson were on hand to light up the town.

The provost thanked volunteers for organising the event and then led the countdown to the switch on.

Before the big switch on, there had been entertainment by Gardenrose Primary, Maybole Majorettes, St Cuthbert’s Primary and singer Emily Best before Maybole Pipe Band led Santa’s sleigh up the High Street.

After the switch on, there was a disco for primary school pupils followed by a night of live music.

The organisers would like to thank Provost Moonie and everyone else who helped out – especially Santa.
