Town to light up for com­pe­ti­tion

North West Telegraph - - Telegraph News - Tay­lar Amonini

The streets of Port and South Hed­land are set to light up as the Town’s an­nual Christ­mas lights com­pe­ti­tion be­gins.

Nom­i­na­tions opened last week for the four-cat­e­gory com­pe­ti­tion, which will see houses dec­o­rated in Christ­mas lights of all colours and pat­terns.

Cat­e­gories in­clude best house/unit in South Hed­land, best house/unit in Port Hed­land, best en­ergy-ef­fi­cient dis­play and best re­cy­cled dec­o­ra­tion for en­trants un­der 21.

This year will also see Christ­mas trees pop up at the South Hed­land Shop­ping Cen­tre and Port Hed­land Boule­vard Shop­ping Cen­tre dec­o­rated by lo­cal pri­mary schools.

A Town of Port Hed­land spokes­woman said the Town en­cour­aged res­i­dents to nom­i­nate their own dis­plays as well as oth­ers they saw around town.

“Schools are en­cour­aged to cre­ate re­cy­cled dec­o­ra­tions and this will hope­fully pro­vide in­spi­ra­tion for the best re­cy­cled dec­o­ra­tion cat­e­gory,” she said.

“While we have a spe­cific cat­e­gory to recog­nise en­ergy-ef­fi­cient dis­plays, we do en­cour­age all en­trants to consider en­ergy-sav­ing op­tions.”

A map of nom­i­nated houses will be avail­able to the pub­lic af­ter nom­i­na­tions close on De­cem­ber 5.

Prizes for cat­e­gory win­ners will in­clude lo­cal business vouch­ers and Christ­mas vouch­ers.
