Christmas gifts galore 

Raglan’s annual Spirit of Christmas exhibition kicked off at the Old School Arts Centre last weekend with gifts galore up for grabs, priced from $5 to $500.

The show runs for a fortnight and is open daily from 10am to 4pm.  It includes a whole range of festive artworks — from pottery and paintings to fabric art and flax weaving — donated by local artists to raise funds for completion of the new building which now stands proud behind the old school in Stewart St.
