Christmas Tree Concert in Hamilton’s Garden Place

It’s 27 metres tall to the tip of the star. That’s over 6 stories high. It takes a team of 15 people to install the frame and the lighting, fluff the branches and hang the baubles. This tree is huge! The tree dominates Garden Place once again in 2020 and will be a great focal point for the community to gather, watch, perform and celebrate the festive season. The tree will light up for the first time on Saturday 28th November 2020 with a special event that includes the opportunity to sing some favourite Christmas carols. The Christmas Tree continues to light up the December nights right through to New Year. This year we will be celebrating on Saturday 28th November 2020 SOURCE   https://youtu.be/OxFpab3Ja8g By Berry & Coffee

New World Glenview Needs Your Help

Unfortunately our little store has been the target of repeated, and aggressive theft in the last few weeks. Sadly people in the community feel that they can take what is not theirs and are willing to hurt our valuable staff in the process! We have great camera footage, witness reports, car regos, and in many cases even know the names of these people! We are asking for your support. Our staff get intimidated and assaulted by these people who think they are ENTITLED to take what they like without paying for it. We are not asking you to put yourself at risk, but rather keep your eyes open and alert staff to any suspicious behavior in store or in the carpark. If you see our staff run out after someone, we ask for your patience as this leaves a void at checkouts or in other departments. And if you KNOW someone that thinks they are entitled to our stuff... can you let them know we have systems in place and their 'light fingered' days need to stop! Let's work together to make…
