IT IS be­gin­ning to look a lot like Christ­mas. Trees, dec­o­ra­tions and plenty of cheer have a funny way of do­ing that. Rochester’s shire hall was decked to the halls with boughs of holly — and dozens of dec­o­ra­tions on Fri­day and Satur­day. That’s be­cause it was the an­nual Angli­can Church Christ­mas Tree Ex­hi­bi­tion. Hun­dreds of vis­i­tors passed through the hall dur­ing the two-day dis­play, which or­gan­iser Wyn Hod­gens said passed with­out a hitch. ‘‘It has been a great eleventh year,’’ she said. ‘‘The kids al­ways love it and it’s so great to get the com­mu­nity in­volved with Christ­mas. ‘‘Some of the dis­plays were very in­no­va­tive there was clearly lots of thought that went into them.’’ Mrs Hod­gens thanked vol­un­teers, res­i­dents and busi­nesses for sup­port­ing the event. Vis­i­tors Mar­garet Mc­Carty, Melody Rus­sell and Beryl Fisher took home raf­fle prizes in­clud­ing a ham­per, Cal­tex voucher and Ma­jors IGA voucher. Pho­tos: LANA MUR­PHY Eileen Mag­ner, Au­drey Christie, Betty Kemp and Robert Brown.
