The first event to be established and run entirely by Springlake residents saw a Christmas Lights competition held through December. Some amazing sights and creative ideas were put on display, with judges Mayor Anne Ferguson and Jo Schultz from Mt Barker Blooms and Baskets announcing their favourite displays and special mentions.

A huge thank you to all those who helped prepare the event as well as the many participants, it is truly wonderful to see such a real community emerging so quickly.
