THIS Christmas, Ripley Town Centre will play host to a spectacular line-up of events and activities designed to bring the community together.
With the aim of reawakening the true meaning of Christmas, the centre will be promoting the sentiment of 'giving back for the greater good'.
A beautiful tree and decorations will adorn Satoyama Way, creating the perfect backdrop for the community to stay, play, and enjoy the spirit of Christmas.
Commencing on Monday, November 19 and running until Christmas Eve, the celebrations will include an exciting Santa's arrival parade (details below), a calendar of Christmas kids activities, a free child minding service and ongoing cheer and entertainment throughout the centre.
In a fine example of 'giving back', Ripley Town Centre's Defence Force Package drive (see pages 1 and 4 for details) will invite the local community to donate non-perishable gifts for our soldiers serving overseas.
A donation box will be located in centre, accepting gifts until December 2 before being delivered overseas in time for Christmas Day.
Along with this, staff at Ripley Town Centre will be performing random acts of kindness, handing out gift cards and other goodies - so make sure you come along, get involved and share in the spirit of giving back this Christmas.
We hope to see you there to share in the magic of Christmas these holidays.
