Cel­e­brate Christ­mas fes­tiv­i­ties

IT’S Christ­mas time! Peace and good­will to all men and women.

Dur­ing this time of fun and fes­tiv­ity, please take care whether you are at home or go­ing away for Christ­mas Day and Box­ing Day and the New Year cel­e­bra­tions.

How­ever you want to cel­e­brate - a pool party or an im­pro­vised plas­tic sheet for a wa­ter slide - have fun but don’t go over­board.

The Biloela com­mu­nity is again help­ing to make this part of the world a good place to live.

On Christ­mas Eve, the lo­cal fireys will be do­ing laps of Biloela giv­ing out lol­lies to the kids and maybe some of the big­ger ones.

The Biloela Skate Park has re-opened and I’m sure there will be plenty of kids keen to try their scoot­ers and skate­boards on it.

And a sport­ing tragic note to the play­ers of back­yard cricket: It’s NOT the Gabba, SCG, MCG or the Ashes, it’s a makeshift pitch with a ten­nis ball wrapped in elec­tri­cal tape and a wheelie bin for a set of wick­ets.

The rules are sim­ple with an au­to­matic keeper if you snick it be­hind, can’t get out first ball and you can catch it one bounce left handed.

There is no pa­per dur­ing Christ­mas week, but we will be back on Jan­uary 4 with all the news you love to read.
