Wemyss Bay Christmas Lights Switch On 2019

It's officially Christmas time in Wemyss Bay, as approximately 80 kids attended the switching on of the Christmas lights in Wemyss Bay tonight!

Santa was in attendance and was busy handing out selection boxes to the excited kids, who were also kept amused by a children's entertainer.

View photos from the switch on of the lights and check out the video below.

Planters at Community Centre
Planters near Community Centre

Planters have been placed on the tarmac area adjacent to Wemyss Bay Community Centre in order to create a safe walkway for children and parents entering and exiting the school, and for those using the park, the community centre and the surrounding facilities.

This has been done to increase safety in this area which is used by cars, although it should be noted that this area is not a car park and never has been.

Explosion heard in Wemyss Bay as lightning hits pylon

Residents of Wemyss Bay got a shock this evening when lightning struck a pylon near the main road! ⚡️🌩⚡️🌩

At 7.41pm, lightning struck the pylon. At 7.53pm there was then an explosion on the pylon and smoke was seen coming from the pylon. The main road was closed with traffic being diverted through Lomond Road as emergency services dealt with the situation.

Various residents, including those in the caravan park, reported that they had lost power.

The following information was provided by SP Energy Networks after the incident:

SP Energy Networks apologise for any inconvenience caused by the power cut affecting customers in the PA16 and PA18 postcode areas of Greenock and Wemyss Bay. Our emergency response team is on their way to the local substation to investigate and repair the unplanned electricity fault. Power is expected to be back on by 11:00pm. We recommend to protect your equipment, and where it is safe to do so, you should switch off and unplug all electrical appliances including your boiler. Leave a light switched on so that you'll know when the power is restored. For further assistance you can call us on 0800 092 9290. Thank you for your patience.

David Boyce, who captured video footage of the lightning striking the pylon and the subsequent explosion, spoke to the fire brigade who told him that the engineer powered it down but can't fix it. Apparently a specialist team has to be called. They have to wait for it to be powered back on in case of fire.
