On the 2nd December at 5pm, on a dull and grey evening, Little Common was wonderfully lit up by the lights on the Christmas tree on the roundabout. A speech was given by James Kimber of the Cooden Beach Hotel who thanked the large crowd for coming and for local traders, shopkeepers and residents for providing the lights and for installing them, not only on the tree but on the village lampposts and shopfronts. These all made for a jolly and happy event. After the opening speech, Mrs Deirdre Earl spoke movingly about her husband Stuart, who died recently, and who was passionately interested in Little Common and always did much for the annual Christmas Lights display in the past. He was even thinking about it during his final illness.
After the switch on, many of the people who came down to watch went up to sing carols at the Community Centre.
