Festive fun ahead

With the festive season fast approaching, it's time to start thinking about all things Christmas, so why not join the party at Harakeke Mall, Beach Rd, on December 1.

The event will kick off at 11am, with a parade leading from the St John station to the Harakeke Mall, and everyone is welcome to join in. Bring your family, friends, schools and community groups along to celebrate the first day of advent.

Santa will be there to help Kaikoura get into the spirit of Christmas, and children will be able to visit him in his grotto.

The grotto will then be open for viewing every weekend leading up to Christmas, from Friday afternoon.

The grotto will be complete with Christmas tree, decorations, lights, gifts and a fire.

Stallholders are welcome for the fete on December 1. To register an interest contact Jenny Carter on 03 312 2441, or Jenny Jordan on 03 319 5429 before November 23.
