Or­gan­iser looks for more Christ­mas glow

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By NICKI DAVIDSON

Houses sparkling with fairy lights, grin­ning rein­deer leap­ing to­wards the sky, Santa pass­ing out lol­lies – over the years you’ve prob­a­bly driven past some sen­sa­tional en­tries in the Pro­fes­sion­als Christ­mas Light Spec­tac­u­lar.

So why not add your home to the fes­tiv­i­ties?

En­try into the Light Up Christ­mas com­pe­ti­tion is free and the Pro­fes­sion­als’ Mar­garet Troughton said they would like to chal­lenge the Mata­mata com­mu­nity to re­ally get be­hind it.

‘‘The lights cre­ate so much warmth and help ev­ery­one get into the Christ­mas spirit,’’ Mrs Troughton said.

Dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories in­clude best-lit ru­ral home, best-lit res­i­den­tial home and best new en­trant. There will also be a lucky prize draw.

‘‘In the past Find­later St, Sharp Pl and Lance­wood Court have re­ally stood out, it’s great when the streets com­bine and they all light up,’’ she said.

En­try forms are avail­able from the Pro­fes­sion­als of­fice at 41 Arawa St.

En­tries close on De­cem­ber 14 and judg­ing will take place on the evening of De­cem­ber 14 and 15.
