We are a team of dedicated volunteers who look after, fund raise and put up and take down the Christmas Lights each and every year in Blairgowrie & Rattray. We also fund raise by escorting Santa and his sleigh around the streets every December.

We are always looking for volunteers to help on the committee as well as with erecting and taking down the lights. We'd also love to have a team to help organise the events and activities in the Wellmeadow on Switch On day.

Let us know if you'd like to volunteer - all help welcome.

I'd like to help
