RANGIORA 313 0111 ONE GIFT VOUCHER
THREE WOMEN -- North Cantabrians Pam
and Helen and Rose from Napier -- have been
working for the last few weeks to bring the
magic of Christmas to Sefton in a festive
show of lights that will double as a fundra-
iser for the Cancer Society.
As they are involved in other charity
initiatives at this time of year for which they
prefer to remain anonymous, the women
asked that only their first names be publi-
The trio have been hatching plans to dress
Pam's house inside and out in the Christmas
spirit as a treat for the local children.
It won't be all smart and slick like some
you see, and that's why we're calling it Hill-
billy's Christmas,'' Pam said.
But children -- especially country kids --
have got great imaginations, so hopefully
they'll enjoy it.''
One feature of the front lawn will be San-
ta's sleigh, complete with reindeer.
I asked my husband to build a little sled,
but he's gone a bit overboard and the thing's
bigger than I ever envisaged,'' Pam said.
The children will be able to sit in it and
have their photo taken with Santa.''
There will also be a woodlands scene
populated by little creatures, a fairy garden
and a snow room, along with a nativity scene
and -- of course -- the lights.
The idea came out of a letter Pam received
after she last put some Yuletide lights up
around the house for her grandchildren.
I came out the next day to find this lovely
card in the mailbox from some little ones
who had been for an evening walk and loved
the lights and who wanted to say thank you
to us for brightening up their evening.
I was blown away, so we thought we'd go
bigger with it this year and try to raise some
money for cancer sufferers at the same
You'll be able to experience the Hillbilly
Christmas with your children from December
7-10, December 14-17, and December 21-24,
from 8.30 till 10.30pm, at 555 Lower Sefton
Rd. A gold coin donation for the New Zealand
Cancer Society would be appreciated.
Fair a festive treat
SANTA'S COMING: Nico Williams, Nathan Cook,
Cassidy McMillan and Tybe Isaacs give a little
taste of what onlookers can expect to see on the
Kaiapoi Borough School Santa Parade float in
the town on Saturday afternoon.
CHRISTMAS COMES to Kaia-
poi on Saturday, with the town
putting on its glad rags for the
Kaiapoi Carnival and Christ-
Organiser Jocelyn Larsen, of
the Kaiapoi Promotions Associ-
ation, says it's going to be a big
The Santa Parade is always
what's going to turn up? The
schools, in particular, are busy
creating, but we never know
what they're doing until the day
-- it's always a closely guarded
She's confident the weather
will hold, too.
In the 21 years I've lived in
Kaiapoi, it's only rained once on
our parade, so I think the odds
are pretty good.''
The parade will start at 1pm
at ARL Storage in Hilton St,
next to Countdown.
It will head up Hilton St to
Rich St, then along Raven Quay
to the end.
The carnival will run from
9am till 3pm at Murphy Park on
Raven Quay. Come along for
wood chopping, a variety of
stalls, chocolate wheels, cakes,
entertainment and rides -- all
the fun of the fair.
