Magic of Christmas begins in Warracknabeal

THE magic of Christmas begins in Scott-st, Warracknabeal on December 1, with the showing of the empty shop windows, beautifully decorated for the festive season.

Warracknabeal Action Group’s Christmas Window Decoration Coordinator Jenny Stewart said the community will again be treated to over 10 decorated windows.

A small committee have once again been busy preparing for this year’s windows.

Community groups including the Cubs and Scouts, Guides and the Arts Council as well as individuals have made decorations and planned special displays for the town’s enjoyment over the festive and holiday season.

“I’m sure the community won’t be disappointed as a lot of work has gone into preparing these annual displays, which will be on show December 1,” Mrs Stewart said.

“We have worked on it for the last six months so a lot of work goes into the windows, but it is always rewarding to see the end result and the feedback we receive from people,” she said.

The Warracknabeal Apex Club will again put up a big Christmas tree on the round-a-bout at the corner of Scott and Woolcock-sts.

Santa’s Mail Box will be available at Warrack Home Timber and Hardware from December 1, to December 19, for children to send their wish list to Santa at the North Pole.

Warracknabeal youngter Mahlie Munro is one of the committee’s youngest helpers this year, and has been inking letters for a special photo frame she has made for one of the Christmas windows this year.

“Our committee are so blessed to have such an enthusiastic young person wanting to help,” Mrs Stewart said.

“We also encourage businesses to add some magic to Christmas by decorating their shop windows as well.”
