Update on preparations for this year's West End Christmas Fortnight

I gave an update last month about the initial 2013 meeting of the West End Christmas Fortnight committee at which I highlighted the 'little local difficulty' that the team organising the events this year have in relation to the fireworks display - the firing site at Seabraes used in previous years now has the new District 10 built on it!    (See right).

Along with our pyrotechnician Rob Carstairs, I recently met with a representative of Scottish Enterprise (who own the Seabraes site) and the City Council's Risk Manager on-site to look at options for the Christmas Fortnight fireworks display and I am delighted that agreement has been reached that will ensure our display, as part of the West End Christmas Lights Switch-On, will take place this November as normal.

The West End Christmas Fortnight committee meets again next month and if you are interested in helping the team, please e-mail christmas2013@frasermacpherson.org.uk.
