Youth spread the Christmas spirit
CHRISTMAS may be the highlight of the calendar year for all young ones, but a group of Warwick residents is reminding kids that it shouldn't just revolve around presents and Christmas trees.
The popular Christmas Down Under, run by a number of Christian volunteers and two youth groups, kicks off its second day today at the temporary home in the former Palms on Palmerin shop.
As well as activities such as facebpainting, craft, origami and storytelling, volunteers will stage a puppet show with a Christmas message and kids can have their photo taken not with Santa, but in the nativity scene.
All photos will be turned into Christmas cards with a message and the puppet shows will begin at 10am and 11am.
All are invited to the free event, and while it is targeted at a younger audience, there is no age limit. The volunteers only ask the event isn't used as a babysitting service and that all children are accompanied by an adult.
The Christmas Down Under will run every day from 9am until Saturday.
