WIL­LIAM St res­i­dent Christina El­li­son wasn’t go­ing to en­ter her home into the Biggen­den Light Up Com­pe­ti­tion.

But she did so at the re­quest of all those who had ad­mired her dis­play.

Ms El­li­son said the dis­play in­cluded half so­lar lights and lots of bat­ter­ies along with a snow ma­chine and bub­ble blower. “It started out as fun,” she said. “It gives the chil­dren a bit of hap­pi­ness and it is great to see smiles on their faces.”

Biggen­den’s judg­ing was held on Mon­day night with Ms El­li­son win­ning the res­i­den­tial sec­tion from Adelle My­ers and daugh­ter Colleen.

The busi­ness sec­tion went to John and Mar­garet Strad­mann while Biggen­den Lions Aged Care came sec­ond.

The en­ergy-ef­fi­cient sec­tion was won byColleenMy­ers, ahead ofChristina El­li­son. The judges said they were so im­pressed with a dis­play that hadn’t been nom­i­nated at Bromelton St, Degilbo, they awarded its own­ers a spe­cial prize.
