Joe Richards and his MAD Squad (Make A Difference), part of Forward Coupar Angus, have put the first batch of lights up along George Street, and will shortly test them out. A Christmas tree is on its way.
More lights going up on Sunday morning starting at 10.00, and Joe is looking for more volunteers to help.
Hopefully all the lights will be in place by Sunday evening so 'switch on' could be Monday or Tuesday.
Jimmy Harris has asked for volunteers to help organise food and drink, adding "lets make it a switch on to remember."
