Town shines bright
Biggenden is all aglow as houses light up
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.
