Season's Greetings

25 Dec, 2015 01:00 AM

The Hamersley family, Fairfield Farm, Walkaway, sent us in this photo of their families Christmas tree this year.

While most families will put up a Christmas tree in their living room, the Hamersley family wanted to spread some Christmas cheer for the locals too.

For the past four years Fairfield Farm has sparked interest from the locals.

Shiree Hamersley said her family first built a Santa on a hay bale as a bit of fun.

"We then had Santa driving a tractor and then Santa driving a header," she said.

"This is the first time we've made a Christmas tree.

"Walkaway residents are always keen to see what we come up with and I think it brings a smile to their faces."

Ms Hamersley said one of their neighbours also joined in this year and built a teddy bear – giving passing drivers something else to look at.

"It took a day of painting and a few hours to put up," she said.

"With the Walkaway wind it fell over, so we had to rethink it, but (my husband) Daryl got the tree to stay up and it took about two hours for the kids to put lights on.

"It's a good lesson for my kids that you don't have to spend a lot at Christmas to make someone happy and you can make memories at the same time."

The Farm Weekly team would like to wish all our readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
