You know Christmas is just around the corner when Warkworth Volunteer Fire Brigade and Warkworth St John throw open their station doors and start selling freshly-cut pine trees.
This year, both services will be back selling Christmas trees in all shapes and sizes from Saturday, December 1 right up until Christmas Eve, or until they sell out.
Warkworth Fire Station will be open from 9am to 6pm every day for cash sales and collection, or local delivery can be arranged, and most trees will cost around $35. Extra large trees are also available, but must be ordered in advance.
Santa will again be calling in to the brigade’s Church Hill station on weekends for photos and fun – keep an eye on the Warkworth Volunteer Fire Brigade Facebook page for details of when exactly he’ll be there.
Warkworth St John will be open for tree sales from midday to 6 or 7pm on weekdays and 9am to 6pm on weekends throughout December, and trees will be priced from around $35.
Paramedic Phil Marlow says they sold around 200 trees last December, and the sales raise funds for supplying the station and staff with general items throughout the year.
Orders: (Fire station) Gaye on 0274 599613; (St John) call 425 7500.
