On behalf of the team at the Cobram Courier, I wish you and your family a very happy and safe Christmas.

There are some beautifully decorated homes in our towns, and I encourage people to take a drive to look at all the beautiful Christmas lights and appreciate the hard work that goes into these displays.
My family will celebrate Christmas at home on our farm near Horsham, and despite our gathering being just the four of us we’ll make it special — because we’ll be together again for a few days.
From myself, Matt, Randall, Tim and Paige — have a happy and safe festive season.
