The Winter Christmas Trail June 2023

This was a hug success! A really big thank you to all the owners of the properties that where viewed on this momentus day. We know it is such a commitment to getting the houses ready. We shout out to the Zonta members who helped out on the day and who had so much fun. We where told by many they so enjoyed the tips how to make Christmas decorations and wreaths by Leanne Lovell from Victoria Florist.

The Winter Christmas Trail is a self drive tour of 8 – 10 houses within Christchurch city. There are a variety of homes, a showroom and villas. The properties are all stunningly decorated for Christmas and showcase many unique features. There was a real antique winter sleigh, stunning floral displays and decorating demonstrations, carol singing, cosy fires, candles and Christmas cooking, and Santa Claus dropped in for the day!

There was Christmas Goodie Bags full of delightful treats which have been kindly donated and where collected during the Trail on the day.

The Christmas Winter Trail is run by the Zonta Club of Christchurch-Canterbury and our members contribute hundreds of hours to planning and preparing for the event. We are so very grateful for the generous sponsorship from Ryman Healthcare and to the wonderful homeowners for so kindly making their properties available.
