Christmas cheer was the order of the day at Wingello’s crafternoon this week.
Each year, the Wingecarribee Shire Council holds a series of Christmas craft sessions across the Highlands.
And each year, they visit one village.
This year, through the Rural Outreach and Delivery Service (ROADS), the council held a crafternoon in Wingello at the Mechanics Institute.
On Monday, December 18, more than 20 children and parents went along to the event.
Council’s Children’s and Youth Services librarian Trudy Eccleston said the ROADS service was a great opportunity for children in the area to attend the mobile library.
“The children had a wonderful time decorating Santa hats, making a Christmas card and decorating a calendar all while listening to Christmas carols,” she said.
The council also runs a ‘Summer Reading Club’ which runs right through to 31 January.
Children between five to 16 years can register at our branch libraries, where they will receive an activity pack. For every five books they read, they will have an entry into a major prize draw $100 gift voucher.
