THERE was a jam-packed calendar of Christmas activities in Glenorchy this festive season, with six community carols events funded through the council’s new Carols Grant Program.

One event was held each week in the lead-up to Christmas, starting with the Intercultural Church’s Multicultural Christmas Carols Celebration at the Glenorchy Uniting Church Community Hall on 4 December.

The largest event was the collaborative Carols in the Vale night in Collinsvale on 10 December, delivered by the Collinsvale Primary School Association and the Collinsvale Community Association.

The 2022 Multicultural Christmas Carols event was held on the St Therese’s Catholic School oval, featuring students participating in a diverse array of Christmas-themed performances.

Your Church Tasmania’s Christmas from Around the World carols and food festival was held in Moonah on 18 December, featuring carols, choirs and a range of activities for children.

Austins Ferry and Rosetta primary schools also held Council- sponsored carols events for their school communities.

Mayor Bec Thomas was pleased by the quality and organisation of the events, which were designed to reach as many residents as possible while empowering local community groups and businesses to get involved.

“The spirit of Christmas is togetherness, so it was fantastic to see our community band together to undertake the planning and execution of these festive events with the support of Council,” she said.
