FESTIVE joy is set to come to Cluny Square next week when the second festive candlelight service is held.

The event debuted last year to great success, marking an end to two festive seasons in a row heavily impacted by Covid.

The service is set to get under way at the square at 6.30pm on Thursday, December 14 and once again is being organised by award-winning community group Buckie's Roots with Buckie and District Community Choir leading the service.

There will be plenty of opportunities for the audience to join the choir in singing some timeless festive classics.

The event will also welcome a special guest in the shape of the Lord Lieutenant of Banffshire Andrew Simpson.

As with last year there will be not one but three special remembrance trees, entitled Past, Present and Future.

Members of the public are invited to purchase message baubles which will be hung on the trees in time for the event. Baubles can be bought for a suggested minimum donation of £1 from the following local outlets: Buckie Community Shop; Right Pharmacy; Hay's Travel; Precious Gifts; Blythswood Charity Shop; Home Bakery; JMK Junior; Pozzi Gift shop; Pozzi Card Shop; AGL hairdresser; Asher's bakery; The Pram Boutique; The Fry Inn; Buckie Community Hub; Moneywise; Moments Card Shop; Bank of Scotland; Fishing Heritage Centre; North Church; South and West Church.

Completed baubles should be returned to a participating outlet before Sunday, December 10.

Mulled wine and mince pies will be available at the service.
