Just a few shorts weeks ago it was feared Peterhead would not be blessed with Christmas lights.
But Saturday’s official lights switch-on was greeted by a crowd of around 1,000 delighted wellwishers in Drummer’s Corner.
An emotional Karin McGivern, who helped rescue the stalled ‘Light up Peterhead’ campaign, thanked all those who had donated the much-needed funds to get the lights erected this Christmas.
A proud Karin told us:“To see all those people supporting us and making it a wonderful switch-on really was a very emotional moment.
“My thanks go out to everyone who has supported us - you really did rescue Christmas for Peterhead.”
