THE festive season has officially arrived at Clackmannan with a fun event for all ages at the weekend.

Undeterred following a windy Storm Arwen, Light Up Clackmannan went ahead on Sunday, November 28, on the town's Main Street.

The well-attended event, which saw more than 300 people out over the course of the evening, culminated in the switch-on of the Christmas lights.

Clackmannan Community Council held a successful Santa's grotto while the hundreds attending kept various stall holders busy throughout the evening.

Trishaw rides with Rudolph, provided by Cycling Without Age Clackmannanshire, proved a hit with children enjoying circuits round the town.

The initiative provided some much-needed fun while raising funds for and promoting the good cause, designed to get people with limited mobility out into the community.

With two tri-shaws, rides were being provided for more than three hours with volunteers Lou, Henry and John receiving a nod of thanks for their support.

Entertainment was put on stage by DJ Dale Alexander, Stirling Rock Choir and Clackmannan Primary School Glee Choir who wowed audiences.

There was also face painting and a Woolly Wonderland festive display, which followed in the footsteps of an earlier community art project that helped brighten up the town with hand-knitted sheep.

Organisers at Clackmannan Development Trust were glad to see many happy faces at the event.

Scott Bamford, active travel support worker, added: "Clackmannan Development Trust wants to give a huge thanks to all the volunteers in our Events Committee who worked so hard to bring the whole night together."
