Christ­mas cheer at Gun­ther Vil­lage

Central and North Burnett Times - - HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE... 50+ -

MAR­KET day at Gun­ther Vil­lage had plenty of Christ­mas cheer.

The vil­lage was fes­tively dec­o­rated for the in­door mar­kets last Sun­day morn­ing.

Lo­cal busi­nesses set up stalls in­side the com­plex, al­low­ing res­i­dents to browse and shop in air­con­di­tioned com­fort.

Ex­ec­u­tive man­ager of the Cen­tral and Up­per Bur­nett District Home for the Aged Chantele Nel­son said the mar­ket was about “bring­ing the shop­ping to the vil­lage”.

“It al­lows our res­i­dents to still ac­tively par­tic­i­pate in day-to-day ac­tiv­i­ties,” she said.

Res­i­dents wisely got a bit of early shop­ping or­gan­ised be­fore the mad rush for last-minute Christ­mas gifts takes hold of the town.

A mu­si­cian kept ev­ery­one en­ter­tained with Christ­mas songs.

And Gun­ther Vil­lage’s fa­mous Thai food kept all the shop­pers well fed.
