Christ­mas cheer comes early to Ex­mouth

Pilbara News - - Lifestyle - Louise Alling­ham

Ex­mouth is gear­ing up for a fun and fes­tive Christ­mas sea­son, with events hap­pen­ing through­out the town.

This Satur­day at Fed­er­a­tion Park, the com­mu­nity is in­vited to join Ex­mouth Chris­tian Fel­low­ship’s Car­ols by Starlight.

There will be mar­ket stalls, which will open from 6pm, and the car­ols will start at 7pm.

Peo­ple are en­cour­aged to bring their singing voices as well as a pic­nic dinner.

There will also be a bar­be­cue and drinks pro­vided by lo­cal com­mu­nity groups.

Pro­grams and can­dles will be avail­able for a gold coin do­na­tion but note there will be no change avail­able.

On Mon­day, De­cem­ber 12, Santa Claus will give the chil­dren of Ex­mouth an early visit.

The Ex­mouth Vol­un­teer Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice will be chauf­feur­ing Santa through the streets of the town in its fire truck from 4pm, start­ing at the splash park.

Santa will also visit the Ex­mouth Play­group’s Christ­mas party.

Ex­mouth VFRS cap­tain Bruce Watts said the ser­vice was dec­o­rat­ing the fire truck just for Santa’s visit and he would be giv­ing out “hun­dreds” of lolly bags to lo­cal chil­dren.

“Only if you’ve been good, though,” he said.

“The par­ents can have a lolly bag if they’ve been good as well — no one misses out.”
