When someone we love passes away,
We ache, but have to go on;
Our dear departed would want us to heal,
After they are gone.
Grief is a normal way to mend
The anguish and pain in our hearts;
We need time to remember and time to mourn,
Before the recovery starts.
Let's draw together to recuperate,
As we go through this period of sorrow;
Let's help each other, with tender care
To find a brighter tomorrow.
May you appreciate your time with your family over the
Christmas/New Year period. From our team at Southern
Funeral Home---Heather and Graham Stephen, Lynette Hodge,
Dave Fraser, and Jessica Bennett.

What do you think? When it comes to festive
decorations, is Gore the Christmas grinch of the
south? Or is understated the way to be?
While sleigh bells may be ringing in anticipation
of this weekend's parade in Gore, Santa might be
a bit confused by the lack of Christmas
When it comes to decking the halls, Gore is
lagging behind Invercargill, with just a solitary
Christmas tree and a few holiday-themed flags
lining Main St.
Invercargill, by comparison, adorns its streets
with tinsel and and ornaments, with nary a city
corner left untouched. Gore District Council
parks and recreation manager Ian Soper said the
flags, as well as the Christmas parade, were all the
festive celebrations Gore had.
''I've been here several years and we've never
seen a need for anything else,'' he said.
''We've not received any requests for anything
bigger, brighter or better.''
But this, like anything, was subject to change, if
there was enough demand for it, he said.
Gore gears up for parade
Finishing touches being put to a fleet of festive floats

Where: Main St, Gore
Plus: Concert in the park at Gore Gardens
A fleet of festive floats is set to take to the
streets of Gore at this Sunday's annual
Preparations for the parade are well
under way, with just a few finishing
touches before the festivities.
Forty-four floats from businesses,
schools and organisations around Gore
had been entered, up on last year's 40.
Gore District Council human resources
and administration manager Susan
Jones said the increase was marvellous.
''The centre float, the council float, will
have 13 children from Pukerau School
riding with Santa and the mayor,'' she
As well as guest of honour Santa, the four
new reindeer bought by the council will
have pride of place in the parade.
In addition to the fleet of floats, a mix of
classic cars and motorbikes will be on
show, with a competition running for the
best decorated, she said.
After the parade, revellers are encour-
aged to head down to the Gore Gardens
and enjoy a concert in the park.
