A community Christmas at Alkimos Beach
The vibrant Alkimos Beach community provided an array of Christmas fun for local families and friends.
December’s 2018 Christmas program started with two Christmas themed outdoor movie nights and a Christmas Lights Competition. The streets of Alkimos Beach were on show with residents illuminating the outside of their homes for their chance to win a $200 Gateway Shopping Precinct voucher.
Sunday 23 December saw a surprise visit from Santa in his horse drawn sleigh to celebrate Christmas.
The three-hour Santa visit, organised by local residents with support from Lendlease, involved Santa travelling in a loop starting and finishing at the popular Leatherback Oval within Alkimos Beach.
Children from over 75 families gathered at the three meeting spots to receive presents and lolly bags from Santa, pat the horse and take a photo in the sleigh.
Santa also managed to make a special guest appearance at the final Alkimos Surf Life Saving Nippers program for 2018, dropping in on the ATV.
The 2018 Alkimos Beach Christmas Program led by local residents was a huge success and demonstration of a community led and funded activity.
