Christmas in Carterton

Christmas came early in 2013 for Green Dollar members – 11 days early to be precise – as some 30 Green Dollar stallholders set up their wares in and outside Carterton's gleaming Events Centre in anticipation of a bumper Saturday Dec 14. So, lots of goods on display and lots of trading between the various members present. But where was Santa himself? Maybe wherever he was just happened to be where all the hoped for shoppers were that morning because though the sun shone the sales levels did not rise to match its passage across the skies and once again Holloway Street was not the bustling centre that the Events Centre suggests it should be.

For all that the morning still provided all the best that Green Dollars so consistently offers its members. There was the usual warm welcome from all the stallholders offering the traditional cross section of products enhanced with a range of Christmas treats to make up for Santa's absence. There was food and drink on offer to sustain members and visitors alike and then there was the oustanding sequence of entertainment created by Nzumeus and Stephan Brown who provided their own distinctive brand of music.

And as the morning drew to a close, those in the know said yes and headed to the other end of Carterton to Roger and and Mary's place where their hospitality was matched by the contributions to the pot-luck lunch. Thanks to all those who attended and contributed and most of all to Roger and Mary for opening their home at such a busy time of year.
