Final day of Christmas Down Under celebrations

TODAY is the last chance to check out the Christmas Down Under celebrations at Rose City Shoppingworld.

The space outside of BI-LO has been taken over by a nativity scene and craft space dedicated to sharing the traditional Christmas message.

St Mark's Anglican Church parishioner Sue Nalder said volunteers from all church groups had worked hard to set up the event.

"We've had quite a few groups through already, from a few months old to 12 years," Mrs Nalder said.

"We have lots of crafts for the younger ones like simple stamping and colouring-in to the more intricate activities like making bookmarks and Christmas cards for the older kids.

"All churches, not just St Mark's, are involved in the event - we've got volunteers from the Uniting, Baptist, Catholic and Presbyterian churches helping us today."

Children are encouraged to attend the free event today from 9.30am to 1.30pm with plenty of craft activities like face painting and colouring-in telling the story of the first Christmas.

Families can also have their photo taken for free in front of the nativity scene, which is printed on site and placed in a souvenir card.
