A Christmas miracle

A CHRISTMAS miracle courtesy of The Leda Group has saved Carols by the Beach at Salt Village.

Carols by the Beach is one of the community's most loved events and in a fairytale ending Leda has "saved Christmas" by coming on board as a platinum sponsor.

Carols organiser Katrina Dudley was ecstatic with the news.

"We have been fielding inquiries about the carols since August, the community loves the event and they are so excited," she said.

"Though this year local business, who support the event every year, have had a little bit less to give in the way of sponsorship, which is understand- able in the current economic climate.

"With Leda coming on board we can ensure we will be putting on an event that is of the same standard of previous years, maybe even with a few more fireworks, which are the crowd favourite."

This is just another injection into the Tweed community with the Tweed Economic Development Corporation finding that Leda's new Kings Forest development in Kingscliff would add $2.526 billion to the Tweed economy and create more than 15,000 jobs.

Carols by the Beach is proudly presented by NBN Television and Leda Group and will be held on Sunday, December 18.
