The lights on Elgin’s Landshut Bridge are to be switched off for an hour later this month as Moray Council’s contribution to WWF’s annual Earth Hour.
The switch-off will take place at 8.30pm on Saturday, March 25 when countries around the world will mark Earth Hour by symbolically cutting the power to iconic landmarks.
Thousands of people in Scotland and millions around the globe are also expected to take part by turning off lights to help draw attention to global environmental issues such as climate change and finite natural resources.
Earth Hour is in its 10th year, with 178 countries signing up to take part last year.
Moray Council area stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Forres in the west. The council and its 4,500 employees respond to the needs of 95,510 residents in this beautiful part of Scotland, which nestles between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands.
Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live.
Headquartered in Elgin, the administrative capital of Moray.
