Contractor to bring Christmas cheer in Queensferry

MORRISON Construction has provided £1,000 in sponsorship towards this year’s Christmas in Queensferry celebrations.

Set to be held in late November, the contractor is sponsoring the main stage and the Queensferry Community Brass Band.

The celebration is run by a committee of volunteers and has been running every year for more than a decade. The switching on of the local Christmas lights down High Street will take place during the night.

Morrison Construction is currently building the £40 million Queensferry High School, due to be completed in spring 2020. Morrison’s community skills manager Henry Lennon said, “At Morrison Construction, we believe in giving back to the communities we live and work in as part of our progressive community benefits programme. We are delighted to assist with this special community event, which is an important part of the Christmas celebrations in South Queensferry.”

Christmas in Queensferry chair Keith Giblett added, “We are very grateful for the sponsorship from Morrison Construction. It is wonderful this leading contractor has chosen to support Christmas in Queensferry while building the new state-of-the-art Queensferry High School.”
