TENNANT’S favourite festive event will be held tomorrow - for
the 79th year in a row!
The Christmas Tree starts at Purkiss Reserve at 5:30pm.
Every child, ten years and under, will receive a free gift and
there’s family fun for everyone.
The jumping castle, dance performances, a sausage sizzle,
drinks, popcorn, fairy floss and much more will available.
There’ll be popular characters from Disneyland to make
sure the children enjoy themselves and a special appear-
ance by Santa.
The tradition was started in 1934 when Kathleen Weaber,
wife of blind prospector William Weaber, organised a Christ-
mas party for the small group of children whose families were
looking for riches on the fledgling goldfields.
The idea took hold and grew, along with the town.
Money to fund the celebration is raised throughout the year
by the dedicated Christmas Tree committee with each mem-
ber volunteering their time for the cause.
The Tennant Creek Christmas Tree is believed to be the only
party of its kind in Australia.
79 years and still going strong
for town’s favourite festive event

Police Christmas blitz
POLICE hope their plans to clamp down on drink-
ing offences will ensure there’s plenty of Christmas
cheer throughout the Barkly.
OIC of the Tennant Creek Police, Detective
Sergeant Andy Bedwell said there would be zero
tolerance for alcohol related offences.
“Over the Christmas period police will be out in
force, targeting drink-driving, violence and other
anti-social behaviour,” he said.
“There will be traffic campaigns in Tennant Creek,
outlying communities and on the highway so any-
one doing the wrong thing will be caught.
“Officers will be conducting random breath testing
at every opportunity.
“We will be monitoring liquor outlets and making
sure alcohol is not taken to restricted addresses.
“We’ll also come down hard on public drinking.”
Det. Sgt Bedwell said Christmas is a time for
celebration, not an excuse to drink to excess and
cause trouble for others.
Police will begin their Christmas blitz with Opera-
tion Unite to be held throughout Australia and New
Zealand this weekend.
The campaign, a blitz on drunken violence, will
target alcohol misuse, violence and anti-social
behaviour in and around licensed premises so be
prepared for random breath testing stations and a
heavy police presence around licensed premises.
Over the holiday period, police will also be work-
ing to make sure everyone travels safely.
“With so many people out and about on our roads
at this time of year we’ll be on the lookout for those
committing speeding, drink driving and seatbelt
offences,” Det. Sgt Bedwell said.
“It’s important that the festive season is also a
