Plean’s Main Street gets a festive look

Updated: Nov 27, 2023

For the first time in the village’s history, Plean has Christmas lights along Main Street.

The lights went live on Thursday 23 November and run from the roundabout at the war memorial to the roundabout at Willow Brae.

Plean’s Voice, a volunteer-led community charity, were the driving force behind the move to raise the £7,000 needed for the 10 sets of lights.

Funding was secured from local businesses and donations from people who have a connection to Plean.

The lights, made up of six winter-themed motifs, are attached to the street lamps.





Plean’s Voice Chair Bob McWilliam said: “To finally have Christmas lights along the Main Street, which is the busy A9 route between Stirling and Larbert, is a huge deal for the village. For years people have decorated the outside of their houses with Christmas lights and the last three years we have had a Christmas tree in the village. These lights will make the village look even more festive.

“We plan to build on the work done this year and look to extend the lights further along the village.”

Background

The lights going live is in advance of a four-day Christmas Event with three Christmas trees in the village (one at Munnoch Way, one next to the Clansman in the middle of the village with the third being at Old Plean) being switched on Thursday 30 November, William Simpson’s Home festive lights switch on Friday 1 December, Santa pays a visit to the village on Saturday 2 December and a Christmas Fayre will be held in East Plean Primary School on Sunday 3 December.

Plean’s Voice was granted charitable status on 24 January 2023 and aims to make Plean a better place to live, work and visit.
