Home > News > 2013 > November

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Children First Farm

……so it was reported in Melbourne’s Herald Sun today.  Journalist Grant McArthur reported that this is the first time Children First has flung open the gates for Carols by Candlelight.

Photographer Rob Leeson visited the Farm on Tuesday where Rongino, Sevelina and all the children are gearing up to celebrate the coming of the Christmas season on Sunday 1 December.

When they’re not rehearsing festive songs for Sunday, the children and volunteers are assisting Farm manager Pat Weldon to transform the huge living room into a Christmas wonderland.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Farm.  Santa arrives at 6.30pm and Carols begin at 7pm, but come early so you have time to see the decorations.  Gates open at 5pm
