Christmas spirit brings cheer to the Amos family
CONGRATULATIONS to the local attractions that have pooled their resources to help the Amos family.
The large Amos clan was shattered recently when thieves stole thousands of dollars worth of Christmas presents set aside for their children.
The story that ran on page one of the Advocate late last month inspired action from a group of local business operators.
Thanks to the teams at The Big Banana, Pet Porpoise Pool, Tabatinga, The Butterfly House, Birch Carroll and Coyle and the Emerald Beach Holiday Park, the Amos family will be able to smile a little more this Christmas.
It is a terrific example of the Christmas spirit that this time of year is meant to bring out in all of us.
THE brightly-coloured Christmas tree on the roundabout at the intersection of Harbour Drive and Gordon Street is a welcome lift for the Coffs Harbour CBD.
It is far from a traditional festive tree but after a few years when street decorations looked a little tired it makes for a pleasant change.
If you are driving around the city looking at Christmas lights, don't miss the CBD tree.
