Spirit of the season

Ornaments and lights adorn the garden of Betty and Mervyn Kay’s at Scotchtown at Christmas time. Picture: Ashleigh Force.

Festive. Christmas is a magical time of love, joy and faith.

One who believes in the true meaning of Christmas, Betty Kay has created an enchanting land of lights for community members to admire, all in support of a community cause.

Be captivated by glistening lights, lanes of candy canes and Christmas trees, Santa Claus and his reindeer and sleigh, and a nativity scene in the five acre garden at Scotchtown for a gold coin donation.

Open from tomorrow, all donations will go to the community’s Transport to Treatment vehicle.

Betty created a dazzling display last year in honour of her late sister Elaine McCulloch and Lynette Rigler who is currently battling ovarian cancer, where more than $2500 was raised for the local Relay for Life.

This year she has upped the ante – and antlers – with new displays to discover in every corner of the garden including a towering reindeer, almost five metres tall, in the centre of it all.

A donation of lights from Erica and Tommy Gale, of Montagu, adds to the atmosphere.

Children will also have the chance to meet Santa Claus and take a photo in his sleigh.

Betty and Mervyn Kay’s home at 88 Mauds Road, Scotchtown will be open tomorrow night (Friday December 7) from 8.30pm for a gold coin donation. A food van and coffee van will be there on the night.

The spectacle will be lit up until 10.30pm every weeknight and til midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, with Santa stopping by for photos each weekend.
