Four Weeks Until Christmas

Filed in Just In by November 5, 2018

IT may be seven weeks until Christmas, but it is only four weeks until Christmas celebrations begin in Scone with Christmas in the Park.

Now in it’s fifth year the community celebration continues to grow said Lee Watts, manager of the Scone Neighbourhood Resource Centre.

“All the favourites will be back, with market stalls to browse or try your luck at winning a ham on the Upper Hunter Men’s shed newly purpose built chocolate wheel,” said Mrs Watts.

“We have musical entertainment by the Oh’s and also the very talented Chloe Hall volunteering on the stage. Bring a chair or blanket and relax while enjoying the evening singing, a collection of songs and carols for everyone,” she said.

“There will be a selection of food on site and Santa of course will make a visit to see all the littlies.

“Children will have unlimited access to rides and face painting by purchasing a wristband at the ticket booth for five dollars,” she said.

“All music and the fireworks are free thanks to the generosity of our sponsors Scone McDonalds, Joblink Plus, Daracon, Regional Australia Bank, Upper Hunter Shire Council, Woolworths, MacCallum Inglis, Ray White Dawson Realty, Hunter Valley Bricks & Pavers, Upper Hunter Men’s Shed and Multicultural NSW.

“A huge thank you must go to the tireless efforts of the SNRC staff, volunteers, Council outdoor staff and essential services, that prepare the grounds, set up for the event and pull down at completion as well as the onsite organising and running of the Christmas in the Park event,” she said.

I encourage everyone to join us and support the community event with gates opening at 5:00pm and fireworks concluding the event at approximately 9:00pm. Please ensure your pets are safe and secure before coming to join us for a fun filled community Christmas.” Mrs Watts said.
