Festive sparkle lights up communities

Bonnyrigg was the first Midlothian community to switch on its festive lights on Saturday – with many others following suit this weekend.

The Dalkeith event this Saturday will include activities such as children’s rides and the Black Diamond Roadshow at Jarnac Court from 11am.

Flaming heck! Firey entertainment at the switch on of the Bonnyrigg lights
