Lighten up Toodyay
YOU MAY have seen the recent campaign for Lights of Toodyay on the Let’s Talk Toodyay Facebook page.
The idea is to get as many Toodyay residents as possible to get out their Christmas decorations and redecorate their gate, fence, letterbox etc. with lights, tinsel, messages of hope or anything creative with the purpose of putting a smile on someone’s face.Read more
The idea was conceived by several Toodyay locals searching for ways to connect to each other in a positive way and boost community spirit at this time.
One local asked the Christmas shop to switch its lights back on.
She said that when she returns to Toodyay at night, the town is dark except for the Christmas shop lights which make her smile because she knows she is home.
The idea was well received, with many people thrilled to have an activity for their kids at home to get involved in.
A new Facebook page called Lights of Toodyay has been set up for people to post photos of their creative home decorations.
This will enable a ‘virtual tour’ of the spectacle from the comfort of our armchairs as we all self-isolate.
The message behind Lights of Toodyay is to show that we are thinking of each other, our community spirit is strong, we will all get through this together and to remind people that you are not alone.
Please join us by putting some tinsel on your gate and make someone smile.
