The West Kilbride Yuletide evening has been cancelled by organisers just two weeks before the event.

The West Kilbride Community Association had planned the night on December 3 to include a lights switch-on and parade.

Chairman Steven Barclay said: “Following further consultation with the council and Scottish Government, we have been left with no option but to cancel our Yuletide event for this year.

“The fluid nature of the current advice and guidelines meant that we were being faced with the possibility of a cancellation right up to the day of the event which is a risk that we couldn’t take.”
