Four things to do this week

1. Pet portraits

WITH Christmas just around the corner, Tweed residents are invited to Petbarn Tweed Heads on Sunday, December 9, from 10am-3pm, for their chance to get a festive snap with their beloved pets and Santa.

All of the funds raised through the Santa Paws photos will help support local animal rescue groups.
