THE Murray Clock is glowing once again after the Christmas lights went up and on in Tillicoultry.

Residents of the town got together at the weekend to mark the annual occasion with fabulous new lights provided by the Tilly Ladies.

The family event – organised by Tillicoultry, Coalsnaughton and Devonside Community Council and supported by a number of others – took place at Murry Square and Tillicoultry Baptist Church’s annexe on Sunday, November 25.

Free tea and coffee from the church, soup from Tilly Tea Room and crepes by the Tillycoeur Twinning Association with ingredients donated by the Co-op kept everyone warm and fed with the community council giving a big thanks for the support.

Young people had the chance to meet Santa before the Christmas illuminations were officially switched on.

A peacock light, made by members of Wee County Men’s Shed also made its debut.

The legs of the Murray Clock had also been repaired by Clackmannanshire Council in time for the event and the Tilly Ladies are now planning to place benches beneath it in the near-future.

A social media statement from the community council said: “Huge thanks to Tillycoeur Twinning Association, Tilly Baptist Church and Tilly Tearoom for providing the crepes, soup, tea and coffee.

“Also, a great big thank you to the Tilly Ladies for all the goodies they provided and for the amazing new lights - congratulations, they are completely fabulous!

“And last, but not least, a massive thanks to everyone who came along and supported the event. We hope you enjoyed yourselves.”
