Campaspe Shire Council wants your help to deck the halls

By Lachlan Durling

IT'S beginning to look a lot like Christmas around Campaspe Shire as council has decked the collective halls for the festive season.

Across the shire, organisations have teamed up to let you shop, snap and even help design some of the decor that will appear in town.

“Working closely with the community ensures each town is decorated the way residents would like it done,” Mayor Adrian Weston said.

This year the Kyabram Chamber of Commerce is encouraging customers to stop and enjoy the space while shopping in their local CBD with a ‘selfie station’ in town.

Rushworth have also created a community project this year engaging the local men’s shed, through the Rushworth Community House, to make Christmas trees frames out of recycled metal.

Organiser Heather Wellington said the project was a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate such a festive occasion.

“We’d love to see as many people join us in beautifying our town decorations to add their own personal touch to make our town look festive,” Ms Wellington said.

In Tongala, the Christmas murals and wishing tree will once again make an appearance in the main street with the new addition of a 3D stack of presents.

“The festive season is a wonderful time of year, and it’s great to see residents out and about celebrating,” Cr Weston said.

Decorations will be installed by early December and will be taken down in the New Year.
