It looks a lot like Christmas!


By Clare Tod

The Christmas spirit hit Whitianga with a comet rush – a weekend jam packed with Christmas themed events. The Christmas decals and the town Christmas tree were all erected and placed for another year, thanks to the Mercury Bay Business Association (MBBA) and all in readiness for the s the Christmas Street Festival last Saturday and The Santa Parade held Sunday.

The MBBA took over ownership of the tree at the beginning of the year, with the promise it will be installed every year for the foreseeable future.

We can’t thank the community and local businesses enough for their support with the tree. Along with the coordination from Mike Brown – Whitianga Lions Club, the installation of the tree this year would not have been possible without the following:

Whitianga Lions Club, St Johns Ambulance Whitianga, PlaceMakers Whitianga, Newhaven Engineering Ltd, Mercury Bay Hi-Ab Services Limited, Hireworx Whitianga, Black River Property Maintenance Whitianga, Carl Gubb Electrical, NZ Move it Ltd, Whitianga Water Cartage Ltd, Allied Concrete Whitianga, Peninsula Roofing and Scaffolding Ltd.
