Lavender Drive in Newton Mearns must surely be Scotland’s most festive street.
After more than two months of planning, neighbours have switched on their street-long Christmas display.
The idea to transform Lavender Drive into a winter wonderland came during the depths of lockdown last year when one resident, father-of-two Fred Banning, was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer.
By asking for donations from those who come to see the 16 spectacular homes, the neighbours raised more than £5500 for the Beatson Cancer Charity last Christmas and hope to collect even more this time around.
“I was going to and from chemotherapy and the first time I turned the corner and saw the whole street lit-up was just fantastic,” Fred, 38, told STV News.
“It was really quite moving, it is like nowhere else I’ve ever lived.”
