Christmas in Lane Cove


The Christmas season is well and truly alive in Lane Cove following the Lighting of the Christmas Tree event.

An audience of over 1,000 people were treated to a magical evening of entertainment and activities. The Mayor of Lane Cove, Clr Pam Palmer, joined Santa and Town Crier Bill Wallace to light up the glorious tree.
