Lighting up the town in Eastwood back in December 1995 were from left to right Trades Guilds president Marilyn Bird, Eastwood Mayor Don Rowley, Broxtowe Mayor Cllr Tom Martin, Cllr Rowley’s wife Marjorie and Cllr Martin’s wife Monica.

The photo was taken the night the Christmas lights were switched on in Eastwood, by Advertiser photographer Brian Eyre.

Brian still works at the Advertiser today, and the three photos below are also taken by him on the same night.

Don Rowley presented Stephen Leatherland the Trades Guild shield for best dressed window display that evening.
