This month we want to challenge Neighbourhood Supporters to come together and give generously from the heart this holiday season. With so much going on this time of year it’s easy to get caught up in the festivities and forget about others, especially those having a difficult time.

Whether it’s an elderly neighbour who lives alone to a family on your street working hard to make ends meet, reach out to someone who could use a little extra joy in their life and remind them what the holiday spirit is all about!

Other ideas include fundraising for a local charity, doing a food or toy drive, organising a ‘Secret Santa’ gift exchange on your street, giving a present to a neighbour who helped to make your 2020 better, or even host a community Christmas lunch.

Let us know how you’re giving back in your community in December by emailing: info@neighbourhoodsupport.co.nz

Big band jazz concludes the midday concert series for the year in St Andrew’s Anglican Church.
The 15 member Great Lake Big Band last performed in Palmerston North in early November as part of the Manawatu Jazz festival and director Rowan Bolley was keen to return there next year as part of the Big Band Bash.
In the meantime local supporters could expect some swing favourites and a few more recent chart purchases.

As usual, said Bolley, there would be a couple of new and old Christmas tunes on Friday, December 4.

The hour long concert at 12 noon is $10 for adults, children and students free.

The midday concert series then takes a break until March 5, 2021.

For further information contact organisers Elizabeth Marshall (3789296), Tracey Lidington (0272409228), or see the facebook page Midday Concert for details.
