The first success of  Law Community Trust was that of the Christmas Light in 2005. A  short and very successful campaign raised over 1750 to purchase a further five new Christmas Lights for the village at a cost of 350 per unit.

In 2004 South Lanarkshire Council were approached by Law Community Trust and agreed to put up nine Christmas Lights. The “Trust” felt that this was a good start but just that a start.

The village got behind the campaign to purchase a further five Christmas Light units.

This brings us up to a total of fourteen Christmas Lights Units. The maximum allowed by South Lanarkshire Council on the grounds of power and maintenance cost’s.

Law Community Trust would like to thank the Community of Law and local businesses for their generous donations towards Lighting up Law@Christmas 2005.
