Merry Mitchell

The Western Star - - NEWS -

SANTA made a guest ap­pear­ance at the an­nual Mitchell Christ­mas in the Park on Mon­day night, kick-start­ing a fes­tive month for the town.

Or­gan­ised and run by Mitchell Ro­tary Club and Booringa Ac­tion group, the event saw a good crowd gather for some Yule­tide fun.

In ad­di­tion to Santa, there was a ham wheel, jump­ing cas­tle, a bar, bar­be­cue, and more than 20 stalls run by var­i­ous lo­cals and char­i­ties, giv­ing many an oc­ca­sion to get a start on their Christ­mas shop­ping.

John Nor­rman won an early Christ­mas present, tak­ing home a wheel­bar­row full of gro­ceries.

Pres­i­dents Rob Cor­nish and Gary Bir­kett said the event had been suc­cess­ful, and looked for­ward to an­other great event next year.

Among the guests was Mayor Tyson Golder and Coun­cil­lor Ge­off McMullen.

“We would like to thank all sup­port­ers and helpers, es­pe­cially Roma Ro­tary Club, for their con­tri­bu­tions,” they said.

“Not least chil­dren from Mitchell State School and St Pa­trick’s School for their very good en­ter­tain­ment at this suc­cess­ful event.

“A very merry Christ­mas and pros­per­ous new year to ev­ery­one.”
