Light up Balerno involved installing lights on four trees in the Market Square in Main Street. The lights have been paid for following a cross community campaign initiated and co-ordinated by Balerno Community Council with a crowd funding initiative organised by the Balerno Village Trust. The Council is now considering the opportunities for extending the lights to other areas of the Main Street, and will consult residents about the options.
The switch-on marks the start of the Balerno Christmas weekend which includes:
- The Christmas Farmers Market on Saturday
- The Christmas Tree Festival on Saturday and Sunday and;
- The traditional Brass Band Concert on Saturday evening with the Broxburn and Livingston Brass Band
We hope to see you there!
