Workers get ’slice of the action’ installing Ballymoneys Christmas lights.

A local Ballymoney business have played their small part with getting the town ready for Christmas, offering a ’slice’ gesture of free pizza to worker recently.

It will be a different sort of switch on this Christmas, with it all happening virtually, surrounded by a programme of activities delivered over several days online by the council.

Despite no official switch-on of lights, it doesn’t mean that these lights are ’locked down’ in storage, instead, the installation has gone ahead as normal overnight, into the small hours of the morning.

BUT it doesn’t happen on an empty stomach which is where Gareth Boyd, owner of Boyds Cafe, came to the rescue and provided the workers installing the lights with several free pizzas while they worked.

A date for the ‘virtual’ switch has yet to be announced but CCGBC has encouraged residents to enjoy it all online this year.
