Ho ho ho, for gifts to love, Montville, Mapleton and Flaxton are the places to go! From mid-November they will be lighting up the festive season! It’s time to plan your Christmas shopping spree and get jingling all the way to great gift shops and refreshing places to stop. 

The village will soon be festooned with festive banners and fairy lights. For a family treat, keep a look out for when the Montville Christmas Wonderland opens and enjoy some magical memories.

From November 14, local participating businesses will be spreading some Christmas joy with the Lucky Christmas Shopper Draws. 

With generous donations from local retailers, dining and accommodation vouchers and much more, there will be two draws on December 7 and 18, with a total of six packages valued at over $1000 each for lucky shoppers and a number of smaller indulgence packs to win. 

Look out for the relevant posters at participating businesses from Montville to Mapleton!

Over the past eight years, the generosity of  local businesses has seen almost $100 000 in prizes donated for these Christmas draws! The first draw will take place during the Festive Tree Lighting Event on the Montville Village Green on Saturday, December 7. 

Everyone is welcome to share in the festive fun with live music from 5pm, carollers, Santa’s Workshop, free activities for the children from 4.30pm, sausage sizzle, waffles, stalls and of course, Santa. Entry is free!
