LURE OF EASTERN LIGHTS
KING?GEORGE V PARK, ST PHILIP, in the east is fast making a name for itself as the place to be for the 12 days of Christmas.
Hundreds have been heading to the spacious recreational facility situated just across from Holy Trinity Anglican Church and The St Philip District Hospital to get a glimpse of the lights strung across the trees and newly renovated bandstand depicting the colours of the season.
Two of the high points are the tree displays with icicles melting from the leaves and the Nativity scene.
Member of Parliament Michael Lashley, whose St Philip North constituency is behind the effort, lauded the people for turning out in their numbers.
“I am pleased with the response,” he said.
The lights will remain up until the first week in January 2012 and there will also be several events to enhance the occasion, such as special nights for music and movies.
