BEITH’S annual Lights and Laughter evening was another resounding success this year.

The parade, led by Santa and Kilbarchan Pipe Band, left for The Cross at 6.15pm and the lights were switched on by the winners of the primary schools’ Christmas poster and plate competitions.

There were plenty of fun events for young and old, including dance displays, a fair and Santa’s Grotto, as well as stalls galore.
