Christmas lights are set to brighten up North Berwick at the end of the month – but no official switch-on event is taking place this year.

The lights will be turned on this Saturday (November 26) but, at a meeting of North Berwick Community Council, members confirmed that there would be no accompanying event this year.

Plans for an online launch event had also been discussed at previous meetings of the group, but this will also not take place.

Comments were made at the meeting that perhaps “in the future people could take on a fresh look” at the event surrounding the Christmas lights switch-on.
