Move over, Largs Yuletide Event- the traditional late night Thursday Evening is back! After all, you can’t fight tradition…
Local businesses requested the Largs Initiative to scrap the 3 day long yuletide weekend event in order to bring back the traditional Thursday Evening with extended opening hours, and they have finally agreed. The three day long Largs Yuletide Event was initially proposed to attract more business to the town, in order for the shopkeepers to get a trade boost to help them in this time of economic recession. However, local businessmen themselves asked for a return to the traditional approach, to be held on the evening of Thursday (as custom as always had it), December 10th.
Commenting on the change, a spokeswoman for the Largs Initiative group stated that: “Although the change of plans has resulted in the cancellation of some of the accompanying events, The Largs Initiative is determined to support local businesses and is happy to go along with their wishes.”
Don’t be so quick to ring out the old… sometimes, it’s just better to keep things as they are.
