Hi neighbours, The Glenbrook Vintage Railway will be lighting up Franklin with festive cheer this year with its award winning Christmas experience.
The Counties Power Christmas Lights – Trains @ Night event will see the charitable organisation's trains, station and buildings dressed in Christmas lights, a special Christmas Express train service, visits from Santa, a Christmas market and much more.
The Counties Power Christmas Lights - Trains @ Night will run from 12-15 and 19-23 December in the lead up to Christmas from 7pm till 11pm.
The first train is at 7pm, and will leave approximately every half hour to the workshops and return until 11pm.
There will be a Santa's grotto, night markets, train rides, entertainment and lots more.
With our January outdoor water use up 30% on last year, Hamiltonians are urged to be mindful of their water usuage to avoid further water restrictions. Sprinkler monitors are now out and about and anyone who notices water being wasted is encouraged to report it.
Kia Ora taatou,
We have a dog on our section and there is this one person who on two occasions I’ve caught in the act feeding our dog when we’ve asked him not to and he denies every time even though I’ve just seen him. Could we as a neighbourhood stop people from feeding other people’s dogs as I’m sure other dog owners would appreciate this too.
