Wandin folk looking to enjoy some Christmas Carols this year will find them at Seville Village Green from 6pm to 8pm on Sunday 9 December.

It will be another happy family occasion to sing along to all of the traditional Christmas tunes, with the music and performances coming from local performers, churches and schools.

Starting at 6pm, Seville CFA Brigade will be cooking up a storm on the barbecue and also has the very important mission to make sure Santa arrives safe and well.

He is not coming on his sleigh with his reindeers but on a big red fire truck so please don’t be alarmed when you hear the sirens.

Two local charity groups, LinC and Anglicare are hoping that locals turn up in droves and remember to bring along a new toy or other present to leave under the Christmas tree.

These donations will be distributed by the charities to those less fortunate throughout the Yarra Valley and bring a little joy into the lives of people who face challenges on a daily basis.

Seville Village Green is situated next to the water park and makes a great spot for a family picnic, a cool down if its hot and a night of Christmas entertainment.

Wandin Yallock Primary School are bringing their year to an end with their Annual Christmas Picnic on Friday 14 December starting at 6pm.

This is very much both a school and a community evening with plenty of room on the school oval to spread out with the picnic rug.

As well as the students performing their Christmas entertainment, the school will also hold its end of year awards presentations when achievements of all kinds will be recognised.

For year 6 it is the Rotary Junior Citizenship Award and for year 4 the Wandin-Seville Community Bank Award, both covering a mix of academic, leadership and community efforts.
