Ayr Christmas lights switch on

Both Ayr Central and Ayr town centre are to work together to switch on their Christmas lights on Sunday 20 November.

The following weekend, Sunday 27 November, Ayr Central with the help of West FM will stage a fun day to herald Santa’s arrival to open his magical Grotto at the centre. The Grotto, the first in the town for several years, is being run in aid of the Ayrshire #BUYMSH Appeal.

The #BUYMSH Appeal is raising money to build a new Malcolm Sargent House (MSH) in Ayrshire. Their aim is to build a new 21st century facility to keep the vital respite provision for children, young people and their families suffering with cancer and other life altering illnesses in Ayrshire.

Also this month the Coca Cola Christmas truck is coming to Ayr town centre on Saturday 19 November marks the start of Ayr’s big Christmas celebrations.

The big red lorry will park up at Burns Statue Square, Ayr between 1pm and 9pm.
