It was a great turn out for the Carols by Candlelight (and glow sticks) at the Mullumbimby Showground last Sunday.

‘We had about 400 people bring their blankets and something to eat and enjoy the evening,’ said Mullumbimby Chamber of Commerce president Jenelle Stanford.

‘It was a really beautiful feel and Coolamon Villa aged care brought everyone down on a bus to enjoy the evening of carols.’

With the assistance of NSW Fire and Rescue Father Christmas was able to make an appearance listening to all the children’s wish lists. Of course he didn’t just take time to talk to the children he also made sure that everyone from Coolamon Villa aged care got their wish lists in as well.

‘The Mullumbimby Primary School did a great job with the sausage sizzle and sold out twice, ‘ said Ms Stanford.

‘We would also like to thank the Showground and Showground Trust who put so much effort into ensuring he show ground looked so beautiful.’
