Warkworth Rotary’s ever-popular Carols in the Park Christmas music celebration is being held at Lucy Moore Park on Friday, December 7.
Two school choirs will join forces with Warkworth Brass to perform a rousing section of carols and Christmas favourites for everyone to sing along with.
The evening will start at 6.30pm with Maori singing and dancing from local college group Te Whanau o Mahurangi Kapa Haka, before the carols start at 7pm with singers from Warkworth Primary and Horizon Schools, backed by Warkworth Brass.
The evening will be compered once again by Rodney MP Mark Mitchell, together with Rotary president Peter Scott. Warkworth Scouts will be running a sausage sizzle, Sylvia’s coffee cart will be providing drinks and treats and those attending are being encouraged to bring along a blanket and a picnic to enjoy on the grass bank overlooking the stage.
Rotary’s Mick Saunders, who is the main Carols in the Park organiser, says there will be a bucket collection for local good causes, but there is no actual charge for the event. “We just try to cover our costs, like hiring lighting and sound equipment and a screen-sided truck that we use as a stage,” he says.
