Carnival lights up

THE Leongatha Chamber of Commerce and Industry held a Christmas Carnival in the Safeway car park on Saturday morning, attracting lots of visitors.
Chamber president Peter Watchorn said people appreciated the festive touch.
“It was good day. We seemed to do all right out of it and hopefully we can lock it in as something we can do every year,” he said.
“The weather held off, so we were lucky there. Santa and his helpers were around which the kids always like.”
Mr Watchorn said while Lions, CFA, South Gippsland Shire Brass Band and Scouts volunteers were there, the chamber would welcome more community groups.
“We went with what we had and we are definitely going to try to do it again. We will try to do it around the same time each year,” he said.
“We had people coming and going throughout the day.
“We may even try to get some of the schools involved next year which may help to bring the families in.”
Mr Watchorn said Leongatha was busy and retailers had enjoyed solid trade.
“All of the talk is pretty positive at the moment,” he said.
