The winners of this year’s City of Gosnells Christmas Lights competition combined colour, layout and design to create a dazzling lighting display that interacts with the local community.

The judges were impressed by the very high standard of entries across the City, but were unanimous in their choice of winners in each category.

Mayor Glenn Dewhurst said the Christmas Lights competition was a highlight of the festive season every year, and it was a delight to see so many residents lighting up their homes.

“The Christmas Lights competition is a great way for people to get into the festive spirit and get to know their neighbours,” Mayor Dewhurst said.

“Having residents walking around their neighbourhoods in the evenings also has the benefit of improving community safety, and gives people a greater sense of security.

“Taking the time to say “g’day” to your neighbours is one of the best ways to feel part of the neighbourhood and part of your local community.”

The $1,000 prize and a commemorative street sign for the Best Decorated Street goes to Consulate Court, Thornlie, and the $500 prize and plaque for the Best Private Residence goes to Mark and Valerie Becker of 26 Prince Regent Boulevard, Gosnells.

The three runners-up in the Best Private Residence category are Philip and Elizabeth Clegg of 39 Westfield Street, Maddington, Adam and Emma Campbell of 12 Consulate Court, Thornlie, and Anthony and Mardi Fogliani of 31 Bindoon Loop, Huntingdale. They each receive a $100 voucher from Maddington Central.

First time entry winners Victor and Joy Ashman of 27 Alcock Street, Maddington, also receive a $100 voucher from Maddington Central, and Nicola Macrae and Russell Wenban each receive a $50 Maddington Central voucher in the random draw.
