The Christmas spirit has been lit across the Tweed, with lights, banners and street decorations going up around the Shire this week.
In Tweed Heads, the border marker has been illuminated with joyful Christmas images that will change for New Year’s Eve. Street banners and decorations have also been installed on light poles from Florence Street to Wharf Street.
The lights on Murwillumbah Bridge have been changed to festive season colours, and decorations have gone up in Alma, Wollumbin and Murwillumbah (Main) streets in Murwillumbah.
Banners decorated with Christmas and holiday messages and artwork by students at Cudgen Public, Kingscliff Public and St Anthony’s primary schools last year will be installed again on picnic shelters in Rowan Robinson Park at Kingscliff.
Like many in the community, Mayor of Tweed Shire Chris Cherry is looking forward to the festive season in the Tweed.
“After such a challenging few years of border closures and flooding, it’s wonderful to see the decorations go up and we start to feel that little bit of magic in the air,” Cr Cherry said.
“We hope it brings some festive cheer to our community and is the start of a relaxing holiday season.
“Let’s all take a moment to celebrate everything that we have in our beautiful Shire, with our families and friends,” she said.
Council would like to thank local businesses Wilsons Displays and Elfords Energy for their assistance with installing the decorations and banners.
