Festive bash celebrated
THE Lyndoch Christmas
Party Committee and the
Southern Barossa Alli-
ance jointly celebrated the
town's successful festive
bash at a get-together last
The two groups recognised
the hard work of their volun-
teers, who made the Decem-
ber 15 event such a great
The party was attended
by around 1500 people, who
were treated to a night of fun,
food and free entertainment.
SBA president Simon Tay-
lor said the party, which had
a huge focus on the talent of
locals, was a hit and creat-
ed opportunities for several
"We've had one young lad
who is 17 and has been told
that when he is 18 he will
pubs in town," he said.
"There was 1500 people at
the Christmas party and that
was just from someone sit-
ting down and hearing young
artists like him," SBA secre-
tary Zoe Phillips added.
"They wouldn't have had
that profile any other way.
"We host these events to
try and promote what and
who is local."
Joeys earn rare Promise Badge
TWO Gawler Joey Scouts completed
an "epic achievement" that hadn't been
achieved locally for over a decade, late
last year, when they earned their Promise
Jemma Reed and Curtis Langley, of the 1st
Gawler Joeys mob, completed the Promise
Challenge -- the highest recognition possible
in the Joey Scout section -- in 2017, by work-
ing on four "core achievements" throughout
Mob leader Sarah Shattell said the badge
hadn't been earned in Gawler for over 10
"As their leader, I am not only proud, but
inspired by these youth," she said.
"These youth had four core achieve-
ments they had to work on and learn, then
discuss them with not only their mob,
but also their leader and their leader's men-
tors (all adults).
"They are forever growing and developing
into young adults and remind me daily -- with
their smiles, jokes and stories -- of why I vol-
unteer and became a leader.
"It is an amazing opportunity for
these youth to not only receive the high-
est award possible in Joeys, but to
continue with it on their uniforms with their
journey into Cubs."
Members of the Southern Barossa Alliance and the Lyndoch
Christmas Party celebrated their jointly organised festive event, held
late last year.
