Festive bash celebrated

THE Lyndoch Christmas Party Committee and the Southern Barossa Alliance jointly celebrated the town’s successful festive bash at a get-together last Thursday evening.

The two groups recognised the hard work of their volunteers, who made the December 15 event such a great night.

The party was attended by around 1500 people, who were treated to a night of fun, food and free entertainment.

SBA president Simon Taylor said the party, which had a huge focus on the talent of locals, was a hit and created opportunities for several young people.

“We’ve had one young lad who is 17 and has been told that when he is 18 he will have a gig at one of the big pubs in town,” he said.

“There was 1500 people at the Christmas party and that was just from someone sitting down and hearing young artists like him,” SBA secretary Zoe Phillips added.

“They wouldn’t have had that profile any other way.

“We host these events to try and promote what and who is local.”
