LONG LANE LIGHTS UP FOR LOCAL CHARITIES

longlanechristmaslights2016stpThe Long Lane Christmas Lights display has been switched on for the 17th time this evening (Saturday), this year in aid of Ability Dogs 4 Young People and Homestart IOW.

Terry and Sue Ramplin invited members of the public to join them for the big switch on at 18:30, with around 100 people turning out for the festive event in cold but dry conditions – a stark contrast to the wet and windy switch on in 2015.

Local businesses have supported the popular annual display including Southern Vectis, HSS Traffic Management, Coast & Country Marquees, Shide Trees, Hamilton Fine Foods, Biltmore Printers and Island Echo.

Coming soon to Island Echo…
