En­tries flood in for lights tour

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place - TERESA HAT­TAN

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.
