CHRIST­MAS is al­most upon us. The count­down has started.

Gayn­dah busi­nesses are gear­ing up for the big shop­ping fi­nale – the Gayn­dah Christ­mas Car­ni­val, which will be held on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 21.

There will be rides and slides and danc­ing in the street for the lit­tlies, en­ter­tain­ment on stage, the am­bu­lance ham wheel, lo­cal raf­fles will be drawn, the win­ner of the GDA Courtesy Award an­nounced, Christ­mas lights win­ners an­nounced, and of course – a visit by Santa.

The Gayn­dah Cham­ber will be sell­ing tick­ets in a raf­fle with prizes do­nated from the busi­nesses in town.

If your busi­ness would like to be in­volved, drop your con­tri­bu­tion to Michelle at LJ Hooker this week so it can be in­cluded in the prize.

The Gayn­dah Cham­ber com­mit­tee has wel­comed some new, fresh, young mem­bers who are keen and en­thu­si­as­tic and are work­ing to en­sure our Christ­mas Car­ni­val has all the in­gre­di­ents for a fan­tas­tic, fun­filled fam­ily night.

As you start (or fin­ish) your Christ­mas shop­ping, take time to browse the lo­cal stores care­fully be­fore you head on­line or out of town.

If you can’t find what you want in the lo­cal stores, ask the store owner if they are able to get the item you are af­ter in stock for you.

There is so much to choose from right here in town.

Shop­ping lo­cally will en­sure lo­cal busi­nesses are here sup­port­ing our town and pro­vid­ing ser­vices and fun nights like the Christ­mas Car­ni­val.

The next meet­ing of the Gayn­dah Cham­ber of Com­merce will be held at the Grand Ho­tel on Tues­day, De­cem­ber 11, at 5.30pm. Jo Dowl­ing Pres­i­dent
