Christmas lights-up friendly rivalry

JUST as Barbara Shannon turns on a laser-lit addition to her Christmas display, her neighbour Pauline Ryan wanders over from tending to her own light display.

"Oh Barbara that looks absolutely amazing," says Pauline. "Dammit."

And while there maybe a bit of friendly competition between the two ladies in Potaroo Cl at Townsend, they say their neighbourly lights display is done in all the right spirit.

"I've been doing the lights for a few years now," Pauline says.

"Barbara has only been in the street this year, but it's great to have her join in with the light-up."

Barbara adds: "It looks great when you turn the corner to see the whole street lit-up."
