SLEIGH bells could be heard jingling at Coal Creek Community Park at Korumburra on Friday night as the park hosted Carols on the Creek.

The South Gippsland Concert Band put on a fantastic show with singers Ann Larkins and Jacqueline Wheeler at the forefront.

Magician Lachlan Wilde, who participated in Coal Creek’s recent Buskers’ Festival and became a finalist in the judges’ section, volunteered to come back for Carols on the Creek and provide extra entertainment.

Despite poor weather conditions, attendances were triple last year’s. Most attendees were from Korumburra, Leongatha and Inverloch, showing a lot of support for the community event.

“Everyone is really happy and heading down with a picnic dinner. No one can be miserable at carols,” Coal Creek coordinator Rowena Ashley said.

Gold coin donations were given to help cover the costs of the night.

The band practices at Coal Creek and is open to members if anyone is looking to join.
