Community Christmas Tree

Following the funding and installation of spectacular Christmas lights on Broadway last year, the Chamber’s next mission is to secure a dazzling Community Christmas Tree.

A 9m-high beauty has been ordered and will be the show-stopping centrepiece of the towns Christmas celebrations for years to come.

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 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.

Donations of $50 or more will be recognised on the fundraising barometer outside Matamata Reals Estate on Arawa Street, and permanently on a plaque on the picket fence as shown.

Donations can be made to the Matamata Chamber of Commerce at Westpac:
