Police Sergeant Turns On Christmas Lights

The Scilly Sirens and the brass band provided the musical backing to the turning on of the St Mary’s Christmas lights on Saturday evening.

The crowd gathered at the Town Hall end of The Park under the Christmas tree donated by the Duchy.

Sergeant Colin Taylor led the countdown to the switching on of the lights in Hugh Town, on The Strand and across Old Town Bay.

Colin is a keen Twitter user, offering updates about his life and policing work here on the islands, and he’s had plenty of feedback since he announced he was turning on the lights.

He said it was a privilege to be asked, adding events like this are important because they bring the community together.

Some attendees told us they were upset that youngsters were running around The Park and The Parade, and making noise during the prayers by Canon Walker and Reverend Gibbs.
