READERS hoping for a Christmas Miracle have until Friday to lodge their application at the Western Advocate office.
Peter O’Brien Constructions has again partnered with the Western Advocate and Central Western Daily (Orange) to offer a $20,000 building project to a deserving person or not-for-profit organisation.
Entries have been trickling in but we’re expecting quite a few between now and Friday.
Once applications have closed, readers will be given the chance to vote for the entry they believe is most deserving of a Christmas Miracle and the entries to get most votes will become finalists.
From there, independent judges from both Bathurst and Orange will select the Christmas Miracle winner.
To be in the running, just fill out the entry form on page 3 of today’s paper and drop it in to our office at 163 George Street.
When you get here, don’t be put off by the ongoing refurbishments at our building – just duck around the corner to our Russell Street entrance to access the office.
Carols kick off festive season
THE annual Christmas sing-along in Machattie Park marks the real start of the festive season in Bathurst – and it’s on in less than a fortnight.
Circle Sunday, December 11 in your diary for the 2016 Reliance Credit Union Carols By Candlelight. It’s always a great night out for all ages.
Memories of primary school
AS the year rapidly draws to a close, hundreds of Year 6 students across the region are preparing for the next big step in their schooling – the start of high school.
But before they say farewell to primary school, though, the Western Advocate is again planning to send them on their way with a special pictorial keepsake.
Last year was the first time we ran the High School, Here We Come feature comprising photos of Year 6 students from across the region and it proved so popular we’re doing it again.
We’re getting the feature together this week and it will run in the Advocate next Wednesday, December 7.
