Narrandera Shire Council is preparing their annual Christmas lights and encourage the community to bring a festive glow to the Shire.
“More than ever it’s important we switch on the festive season,” said Councilor Neville Kschenka, Mayor of Narrandera Shire Council.
“We’re letting the community know that holidays are on their way and I encourage everyone to consider how to bring a colourful glow to the Shire.”
Dazzle us with your display
Narrandera Shire’s Christmas lighting display competition is back, and entrants can select from the following categories:
- Best Barellan House
- Best Shire Business
- Best Grong Grong House
- Best Narrandera House
- Best Narrandera Street
- Best Rural Mailbox
“Even if you only have a few decorations, we encourage you to register so that the map can be created to help people identify the streets to visit.”
Register online by Sunday 12 December 2021: www.narrandera.nsw.gov.au/christmas-competition
One registration per household, please and be sure to upload a photo of your decorations (even if was taken in a previous year) to help us identify each site.
Your photographs will ensure your display is easy to recognise on the map, which will be available on Council’s website and be provided to the Lions Club for their train rides.
“From 15 December you’ll be able to plan a tour of Christmas lights across the Shire to undertake your research before voting for the best display,” said Cr Kschenka.
