An Easter Ross town paid tribute to the goodwill of supporters who came together to bring a festive glow this year.
Invergordon Community Council say they are delighted to have secured funding for new Christmas lights for the central High Street area.
Many of the existing lights had been damaged in winter storms earlier this year when it was not possible to remove them due to the lockdown imposed on Boxing Day.
The new lights are the start of a project to replace all of Invergordon’s Christmas lights over the next two years.
The Community Council thanked Donnie Calder Electrical, Roy MacGregor and Safety Welding & Lifting Limited who helped inspect and repair as many old lamps as possible.
He also thanked Stuart Bruce of the Highland Council Lighting Team for his help and advice and Councilor Maxine Smith for securing a contribution from the ward’s discretionary budget and Mark Lancaster of the Invergordon Distillery for accepting delivery of the new lights in his name.
The lights are now on, beginning the Port City countdown to the holiday season.
It is understood that a tree will follow in the next few days.
