With the festive season fast approaching, Bucketty Tidy Bush and the Bucketty Rural Fire Brigade extend a warm invitation to all families and friends of the Bucketty community to set aside Saturday 17th December, as the date for this year’s ‘Carols by Candlelight’ under the stars at the convict wall, George Downes Drive, Bucketty.

This Christmas gathering symbolises all the goodwill of the Christmas spirit, giving families, neighbours and friends, young and old, a real opportunity to get together and celebrate everything that is Christmas. The program this year will have a few surprises. Once again, we will be under the musical direction of Peter Donald and his family. There will also be a performance of the Central Coast ukulele orchestra, as well as a couple of surprise guests.

As always, we will be encouraging the children to come up onto the stage and help with the community singalong, with lots of bells and instruments to play. Should be a lot of fun.

Bucketty RFS will run a BBQ, with specialty dishes, desserts and soft drinks – all available at a modest price. Alternatively, you are welcome to bring your own picnic, including any BYO. The BBQ starts serving at 6pm.

Of course, the highlight of the evening is an anticipated visit from a special friend in a red suit! For this we have the fire truck booked for around 7:45 to bring in our guest. So mums and dads, you know what to do at the special gift drop-off point at the entrance gate.

Last year we set up our first ‘Christmas Gifting Tree’ and were able to deliver some 47 gifts to sick kids in hospital and the Red Cross. This is a great initiative and it will have a special dedication added to it thier 18. Any enquiries, call Roger Danne on 0417 449 355.s year. If you feel like bringing a gift to place under the tree, please mark it with a card and indicate the appropriate age and gender of the recipient.

You are all invited to come along, bring the little ones, join in and meet your community – it is an evening to create memories. Admission is $10 per person ov
