2020 has been an extremely difficult year, first with the bushfires and then with the pandemic. Everyone has been affected in some way, so with this in mind Cumberland City Council will be proceeding with this year's Christmas event in Auburn Botanic Gardens in line with COVID-19 regulations.
The event will be different to previous Christmas and carols events, hosted by our Council. For example, there will be allocated seating to ensure physical distancing is maintained; attendees will be required to register on arrival for contact-tracing purposes and crowd control measures will be in place to manage capacity. Importantly, hand sanitisers and masks will be available.
For residents who are unable to make the event, we'll also be live streaming festivities. Not all Councils are proceeding with Christmas events this year, however, we hope that our residents take the opportunity to engage with our event and that it brings them some Christmas cheer.
