Christmas Lights

*coloured lightsMevagissey’s brilliant Christmas lights will be switched on with an official ceremony on Saturday December 6th. There’s a procession which will be leaving the Fire Station at 5.00. The parade will make its way to the harbour for the grand turning on at 6.00. There will be lots of entertainment with live music, mulled wine & mince pies.

(Incidentally, donations very welcome!)
