Alistair Suttie, chairman of Leven Community Council which organised the festivites on the day, thanked evryone who helped to make the event a success.

“Despite a bitterly cold day, there was some great entertainment by singers from Mary Blackford’s singing school and the fantastic local talent Cody Feechan.

“Methilhill Community Pipe Band brought the parade up the High Street and the Second Leven Brownies and Rainbows led the carol singing before Tricia Marwick MSP introduced the Rose Queen, Lola Taylor, to switch on the lights.

“Leven Community Council would like to give a big thanks to all who braved the elements to support the event. A lot of the work to arrange this is done by Leven Environment Group, who arrange and maintain the lighting.”
