Collaboration brings Christmas decorations to life

Westhanven Dubbo workers helping with the Smile it

The Dubbo Ignite programme is getting ready to launch the Smile! It’s Christmas campaign for 2016 and the construction of the Christmas decorations is already underway.

“This year the decorations will be made through a collaboration between Dubbo Regional Council, Brennan’s Mitre 10 the Dubbo Community Men’s Shed and Westhaven Association,” Ignite Program Co-Ordinator Nicola Chandler said.

“As in previous years Brennan’s Mitre 10 will be providing all the raw materials and transportation of the decorations at cost.

“The raw materials will first go to the Men’s Shed where they will be shaped into the special Christmas creations by the wood work team.

“The team at the Men’s Shed were more than happy to help Dubbo get ready for Christmas.

“After the decorations have been shaped they will be sent to Westhaven where the crew there will paint and decorate them.

“We expect the public will love this special addition to the Christmas celebrations in the CBD this year,."

The official launch of Smile! It’s Christmas will be at 10.30am on 5 December 2016 with the unveiling of the decorations, Christmas tree and special CBD flags.
