Community Christmas Tree
Following the funding and installation of spectacular Christmas lights in Broadway last year, the Chamber’s next mission is to secure a Community Christmas Tree.
An 8m-high beauty has been ordered and sitting outside Stirling Sports in Arawa St South agreed to by Matamata-Piako District Council.
The fully dressed tree, including installation, operation, removal, and storage, will cost about $30,000.
A public fundraising drive has so far seen more than $27,000 contributed.
The tree will be in place for the Chamber’s next Christmas at Our Place promotions, with the Twilight Market in Arawa St South set down for December 3 and the annual Christmas Parade the following day.
It will remain throughout the festive season.
Contact Steve Edwards at the i-SITE for donation details and any further information.
