The Community Council had no money to provide either lighting or an electrician to erect them. £3000 was acquired from the local area budget and this allowed us to make a start.
On examining the old lighting, it was found to be beyond repair and was condemned by the electrician. With a limited amount of money, we were in a dilemma. It was decided to try and do something simple in the few weeks we had available.

One of our Bingo evenings at the Jubilee Tavern
Fundraising by the Community Council for 2018s Christmas Lights, continues apace. Carole-Anne has organised raffles and collecting tins in the Co-op; our picture shows Joan Dewar receiving the £100 flyer prize at a very successful bingo evening hosted by Dave Henderson at the Jubilee Tavern. Over £400 was raised on the night and a very generous donation by Collieston Briggs of £500 plus a £200 donation by The Burgh Buzz, has given a huge boost to our efforts.
Christmas Lights are expensive to purchase and to maintain so fundraising efforts will be ongoing to ensure that the town can build-up a energy efficient, low maintenance display.
Our target for 2018 is to raise £2500 and we are well on our way to achieving this. If you feel you would like to make a donation towards the fund, go to the Community Council page on facebook or visit www.burntislandcc.org.uk to make a direct donation. Please support our fundraising efforts throughout the year.
