Christmas in July

Older Kingborough residents are invited to attend the popular Christmas in July feast, which will be prepared and served by young people of Kingborough.

The School Holiday Activities program, organised by Council’s Youth Services, is again bringing Christmas in July to senior members of the community. The successful model is unique and was developed between Youth Services and Council’s Positive Ageing Program. The successful training and event model brings young people together, to be trained by a qualified chef during their school holidays. Their new skills are put to the test when they prepare and serve a three-course lunch to 120 guests.

The Mayor of Kingborough, Cr Steve Wass, enjoys attending the lunch and said “The Christmas in July lunch is a sell-out event in Kingborough, and is always delightful. It is a real life learning experience for our young people and is wholeheartedly supported and valued by our older community members.”

Council invites all members of the community, aged 65 years or over, to register for this festive occasion, which is being held on Friday, 20 July from 12pm to 3pm. Tickets are $20 per person, which includes the three-course meal, a drink at the bar and entertainment throughout the lunch. Bookings are essential and must be made by Friday, 13 July by calling (03) 6211 8170 or emailing
