Tilligerry’s Santa lolly run goes high tech!

Santa on his annual run.

 

TILLIGERRY’S Santa lolly run was a big success again this year but there were some changes.

The Tilligerry RSL provided finance for the sweets and the run was shortened with certain cross streets left out to save time.

What’s more, Santa was inside the truck and not up high on the tray waving to the kids.

But how were the good boys and girls who lived in these bypassed streets to get their bags of lollies?

Well, as we said in an earlier story, Santa and his firie friends had gone high tech!

Yes, they had a satellite tracker and all you had to do was click on Tilligerry RFS Home Page and you could watch the big red truck working its way along a street near you.

When the tracking map showed him getting close, you could run down to the kerb or the corner and the truck would appear!

Our local firies are highly respected in the area.

Not only do they save us from the flames, they also run ‘The Brooks’ Award’, a scholarship for two students from Tanilba Bay School.

They do all this as unpaid volunteers.

Even after they returned worn out from the big bushfires a couple of years ago, they still took the truck out for Santa’s Christmas run.

Thank you to all the local brigades and their members for their service.
