Waipa Post - - News - BY DEAN TAY­LOR

It’s no se­cret to any­one that knows me — I love a good Christ­mas light dis­play.

For the last few years I have or­gan­ised the Te Awa­mutu Alive Christ­mas Tree in the Rose Gar­dens — which is now lit nightly for the 2018/19 fes­tive sea­son.

The tree is pro­vided due to the good­will and gen­eros­ity of the pub­lic, so out of re­spect and for your own safety, please do not climb the tree.

We have also col­lated an an­nual Christ­mas Light Trail and this year in­vited Cam­bridge res­i­dents to pro­vide de­tails of their dis­plays.

This pub­lished list in­cludes ad­dresses sub­mit­ted, as well as dis­plays we have seen or been told about.

We have also li­aised with Taryn Ly­ford of Black Fox Cre­ative who is also col­lat­ing a Christ­mas Light Trail and wants to ex­tend out of Cam­bridge and en­com­pass Waipa¯ .

Taryn plans to pub­lish a full trail, but those that reg­is­ter or are nom­i­nated are in to win spon­sored prizes. Spon­sors are also sought — de­tails at Black Fox Cre­ative Face­book page.

She is also or­gan­ises the Cam­bridge Twi­light Christ­mas Mar­ket, which is be­ing held this Satur­day at Leam­ing­ton Do­main from 4pm-8pm.

If you are not on the Christ­mas Light Trail list, but want to be, email your ad­dress to dean.tay­[email protected] or text TAC Lights, plus the ad­dress, to 021 241 4568.

We will up­date the list, plus a map which Taryn is cre­at­ing, on our Face­book page.
