Christmas isn't christmas without the floor being covered in an assortment of wrapping paper, envelopes and gift packing strewn throughout the vicinity of the wonderful tree!

Be aware that most of this can be recycled but some of it can't.

Please see the 1 Coast website for which bin to place, not only wrapping but other assorted excess Christmas items as well.
A Coastal Christmas Carol
Sing along to the tune of White Christmas
Whats On logo button A few words from the Author...
I was born and spent ½ my life in the UK and at Christmas time I always loved the old classic song ‘White Christmas’ sung by Bing Crosby which was most applicable to the cold and often snowy winters especially in Scotland it only being a few hundred miles from the arctic circle.

Here however whilst we hear it on radio and in the shopping centre at Christmas time it doesn’t really suit the environment in which we live on the Central Coast so I gave it a new title and wrote these lyrics!
Hope you like them!

Whats On logo button A CHRSITMAS POEM:

Aussie Christmas:
A jolly big man in a thick soft drink suit
Snowmen, reindeer and sleigh bells to boot!
A worldwide day with a foreign attitude
Far removed from us and our different latitude

Our cicada’s songs herald an oncoming day
that we all enjoy in our own special way.
Hot roast, cold seafood or a barbie; dad’s pride
under shade of the trees, for the heat outside.

Time to catch up with family and friends
A few days off with the long weekends
This is Christmas, yuletide our own silly season
Double demerits to be lost for lots of reasons.

Typically Aussie and Central Coast
That holiday feeling we love the most
Enjoy the love, the outdoors; the surf and the sand
That we are blessed with in our paradise land.

Whether it be Heat wave, cool, or lightning and thunder
It’s our own special Christmas in our land … ‘down under’.

Whats On logo button CAROLS IN KIBBLE PARK:
Wednesday 24th December 2013
The Gosford Uniting Church are delighted to advise that Christmas Eve Carols, which had been a tradition in Kibble Park, Gosford for a reported 55 years, will return this year with a fresh, new look.

The Gosford Uniting Church are planning a traditional Christmas Carols program in the ideal setting of beautiful Kibble Park, located on the corner of Donnison St & Henry Parry Drive. The Gosford City Brass Band will provide the on stage entertainment and the event is proudly supported by Gosford Business Improvement District inc and Gosford City Council.

Rev Greg Woolnough of the Gosford Uniting Church comments:
“This is an event for the whole family to come along and enjoy on Christmas Eve, 24 December. In keeping with the fine tradition of Carols in the Park, the Gosford Uniting Church in cooperation with the Gosford City Brass Band will be holding this year's free Christmas Eve Carols in the Park, commencing at 7:00 p.m. in Kibble Park, Gosford.

The band will begin at 6:30 with the evening concluding by 9:00 p.m. There'll be a sausage sizzle, soft drinks and tea and coffee for sale. Santa will also be paying us a visit towards the end of the evening. We do hope that as many people as possible come along and share a sense of togetherness on this very special night.”

There are 650 Car Parks available in the former Gosford Town Centre building located opposite Kibble Park, Gosford on Henry Parry Drive with access from Albany Street.
