Illuminating Edinburgh & Renfrewshire Councils
Friday 17 January, 2020
Since as early as mid-October, the Field and Lawn Scotland branch was out installing Christmas lighting displays.
The team installed all sorts of infrastructure in 2019, from ceilings of light in Renfrew, to ground-based sparkling white trees on Edinburgh's George Street.
The team was tasked with installing festive lights to 29 areas with switch ons running from the middle of November to the middle of December. During this time additional areas have also had lights installed and maintenance checks have been carried out on all our installations.
The two main switch ons taking place on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh and Paisley town centre attracted over 33,000 people to look at our amazing lights.
We had a great few weeks working with these councils, and being able to bring the joy of Christmas to all the local communities within these areas was extremely rewarding.
Now that Christmas has passed, the lighting teams are well underway with the dismantling process. Hundreds of features and thousands of lights will make their way back to the Scotland branch over the next couple of weeks. Focus will then turn towards maintenance and organisation of the Christmas lights for installation 2020.
Contact our Christmas Lighting team to find out how we can light up your area for Christmas 2020 with one of our dazzling displays.
