Lets start with Merry Christmas Melbourne, we hope everyone enjoys a happy Christmas and a safe new year. Next week, the newsletter will be out on Chiristmas Eve (Tuesday) with loads of fun things to do in the lead up to new year's eve.

What a week it will be.. seven days before the fat man sings.. comon' Santa!

This week we'll concentrate on the weekend and the few things you can do other than fighting for parking spaces in shopping centre car parks, and battling the crowds looking for those last few gifts. Good luck.
