Christ­mas comes early with car­ols and fire­work dis­play

Kalgoorlie Miner - - NEWS - An­drew Bros­nan

The Gumtree Church in Nulsen is invit­ing the Esper­ance com­mu­nity to get into the fes­tive spirit and at­tend “Car­ols in the Carpark” on Satur­day evening.

With Christ­mas just a week away, the Gumtree Christian Fel­low­ship is hold­ing a Christ­mas car­ols per­for­mance out­side the church at 6.30pm.

Be­fore the per­for­mance, the group will also man the bar­be­cue for a sausage siz­zle from 5.30pm.

On Christ­mas Day it­self, the church will run a lunch from 11am, for which guests are asked to con­trib­ute their favourite Christ­mas nib­bles.

Both events will take place at the church, which can be found at 69 Rouse Street in Nulsen. Mean­while, the fes­tive sea­son has re­ceived a boost after the Shire of Esper­ance agreed to waive a $50,000 bond for the New Years Eve fire­works dis­play.

Ini­tially, the Ro­tary Club of Esper­ance ex­pressed con­cern it would not be able to launch $15,000 of fire­works due to the Shire’s re­quest for a bond.

The bond was to re­quested to en­sure “the Esper­ance Water­front was prop­erly re­stored and re­in­stated after the fore­shore event”.

How­ever, the Shire has since re­neged on its re­quest for the bond and the dis­play is set to go ahead.

The fire­works will be launched from a barge 200m off the coast at the fore­shore.
