On the 23rd of December Mr Whippy arrived down from Bathurst, selling Coffee's, Icecreams and the ever popular Slushee's. A big thanks for helping out, and he will be back next year.
A visit from Santa on Christmas Eve was a suprise for all. It did manage to cause a small traffic jam which lasted for over 2 hours as seen below. We took digital pictures of Santa with over 50 visitors, and they were emailed out later that evening, or on Christmas Day. Hopefully Santa will be a regular visitor in 2009.
There are 8 cars in the image, but there were another 4 across the road and 2 in the paddock to the right. Considering our street is a dead-end, and only used by those who live in the street, the increase in traffic was definately noticed. Traffic stayed like this from about 8:30PM until lights out at 11:30pm. A big thanks to everyone who helped on the night.
