Christmas lights competition winners announced

Winners of a Christmas lights competition have been announced by the Peninsula Business and Tourism Partners.

The competition aims to help promote Ettalong as a Christmas shopping destination.

Winner of this year's first prize was homeware shop Goddess by the Sea, with Helado Cafe and Scarlett Table in second and third place respectively.

Prizes included advertising with Peninsula News.

"We are pleased with this year's success," said Tourism Partners president Ms Kim Cole.

Ms Cole said, even though the winner had been announced, visitors to Ettalong could still vote for their favourite festive shop displays.

Votes can be lodged through the Peninsula Business and Tourism Partners' Facebook page and will be accepted until December 26.

"We trust, the shoppers will come to see what the village has to offer," Ms Cole said.

"There are homeware shops, hair salons, a new shop with oil and fragrances, flower shops, real estate agents and of course cafes and takeaways.

"Thanks to the generosity on the Peninsula News, Goddess by the Sea now has $850 to spend on advertising, Helado has $600 and Scarlett Table, has received $500," Ms Cole said.

Ms Tesch said she was pleased to see a grassroots initiative unite the business community with their local newspaper.

"This is a great initiative that has brought the business community together to show the diversity, Ettalong has to offer.

"As chairperson, I'm excited that so many shops took up the opportunity to participate," Ms Tesch said.

Peninsula News financial operator Mr Cec Bucello said the team at the paper was happy to come onboard for a second year.

"We are happy to support and sponsor such great effort again in 2019 after the success from last year," Mr Bucello said.
