It’s Christmas time, again!

By Sheree Hoddinett

If you’re not already in the festive spirit of Christmas, there is still time! While the kids are eagerly counting down to the arrival of the big guy in the red suit, many parents out there are probably counting down until it’s all over. There is some good news (no, Christmas is not cancelled, sorry parents, haha!) with many activities and events happening to help pass the time and keep the kids – and even bigger kids – entertained until we see in the new year.

So where do we start? Take your pick of fun events across the region from now until the start of the new year.
