Aged care residents show Xmas decorating skills

AGED care residence New Auckland Place is getting in the Christmas spirit with a fiercely-contest decorating competition.

Three floors at the facility has been decorated to a theme, including outback Christmas, winter wonderland and beach Christmas.

Activities officer Lind Mitchell said the community decorations were done by residents, their families and staff as part of the Christmas decoration competition.

"We take Christmas seriously," she said.

The winner of the competition was Winter Wonderland (Boyne Floor), judged by Gladstone MP Liz Cunningham and New Auckland Place owners.
