The very popular Carols in the Park at Black Head will be held Sunday December 17 from 6.30pm.

The Manning Concert Band will be warming up before then though, and Halliday’s Point Lions operating their barbecue from 5.30pm.

Co-ordinator Alan Tickle from Hallidays Point Community Uniting Church said this year’s event will follow the theme of previous years, where family fun and entertainment is the objective.

“It’s great to watch the smiling faces of the students and teachers from local Kiddies Hut pre-school and the Hallidays Point Public School as they sing and dance,” Mr Tickle said.

“This year Jodie Cooper, Georgia Hudson-Rose and Ray Smith will perform as well as lead some carols for the first time at Black Head.

“They will be joined on stage by Cassidy Donovan, Mary Camphuis, Raelene Brown and Paul Eade.”

“The local Probus choir will add their support to the Manning Valley Concert Band in leading, along with some local regulars.”

“Anthony Zanos has who has become a fixture at the event will one again be compere.”

“Santa will make an appearance too with a bag of lollies and some glo- bangles,” Mr Tickle said

People need to bring a chair or rug and a jacket is a good idea as the wind from the ocean can pick up later in the evening.

The event has free entry although a donation to off-set costs is welcome and battery candles are for sale.

MidCoast Council, Bakewell Haulage and Solomon’s Fruit Market support the event in conjunction with Hallidays Point Community Uniting Church.
