Entries flood in for lights tour
Entries are flooding in thick and fast for this year’s Bayleys Christmas lights tour.
A number of entries have so far been received by Bayleys, with plenty more expected over the coming days.
Bayleys’ Margaret Troughton is thrilled with the reaction to this year’s lights tour.
‘‘It’s wonderful to see people get into the festive spirit.’’
Pop into Bayleys at 41 Arawa St for an entry form and make sure to get your home sparkling with Christmas decorations.
Many Matamata businesses have also embraced the festive season and have decorated their shop windows or created displays.
The Matamata Chronicle is running a competition in this week’s paper, which can be found on pages 16 and 17, for the public.
Simply match the Christmas display with the business and be in the draw to win a $150 voucher, a New World Christmas hamper or Christmas lights.
The public are also encouraged to vote for their favourite Christmas display on the Chronicle Facebook page in the coming days.
Bayleys Christmas lights tour on December 11, with the map published in the Matamata Chronicle on December 16 and December 21.
Two lucky entrants will be drawn out on December 16 and will each receive a $150 Mitre 10 voucher.
