Blackbutt embraces the Christmas theme

BLACKBUTT has begun the final countdown to Christmas.

On Saturday night, about 100 people gathered at the Anglican Church for the Blackbutt Community Christmas Carols.

Enthusiastic carollers were led by the Schwarze family and the Blackbutt Anglican Playgroup put on a sausage sizzle.

Reverend Avril Green said she was delighted with the turnout.

"It's the first time we've done it at the church and it's been a good night," she said.

"It's a great community event and I'd like to thank everyone for their support."

And the Christmas festivities didn't stop there.

Continuing the Christmas theme, children and parents gathered at the Blackbutt Bakery on Sunday to catch a glimpse of Santa Claus.

Santa made a special trip to Blackbutt to give out bags of lollies as a pre-Christmas treat.

He will be there again this weekend, for those who missed him.
