Jingle Bells can be heard in the shopping centres, radios are blaring out the perennial favourite, Wham’s Last Christmas, and I’m Dreaming Of A White Christmas means cracking open some bubbly in the hot Australian summer.

Christmas Carol events are planned across the region and they are an opportunity for the community to get together and spread some festive cheer.

Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Williamtown, the Medowie Carols are back on this year.

Friday, 1 December at Ferodale Oval from 6pm and the sounds of music will fill the air.

Carols Coordinator, Mr Geoffrey Hamilton told News Of The Area, “I am delighted to advise that this year looks more exciting than ever with an adult choir joining the entertainment as well as a soloist and of course all the school presentations including the Medowie Christian College choir.”

Rotary have even managed to track down the man in red, Santa, who will be making an appearance at the Carols.

Mr Hamilton said, “There will be stands from Lions Club, Century 21, Medowie Christian College, Rotary and more.”

Showing there is no slowdown to their community spirit, the Medowie Rural Fire Brigade will be participating in the Carols too.

Mr Hamilton thanks the business sponsors for their support including Gold Sponsors: Newcastle Permanent Building Society, Century 21, and Medowie Christian College.

Silver Sponsors: Cunningham and Adam Solicitors, and Medowie Pharmacy.

Bronze Sponsors: Medowie Butchery, Bull and Bush Hotel, Medowie Car Care, Medowie Hardware, Medowie Macadamia Farm, and Little Pantry Co.

The Rotary Club is still looking for sponsorship to ensure the event can go ahead.

To sponsor this community event, which does not receive Port Stephens funding, please contact Mr Hamilton at [email protected]
