Ambica Shivaram will celebrate
the Warooka Pharmacy's second
birthday next Tuesday, December
18.For Siva and his business
partner, sister Ambica, the
celebrations will be an
opportunity to thank the local
community for its support.
"From day one people have
been most welcoming not only to
myself and Ambica, but my wife
Anu and son Himanish," Siva said.
"We had looked at a number of
areas to open a pharmacy but
chose Warooka primarily because
of its central location and
proximity to a number of coastal
communities, which of course
attract a high number of visitors,
particularly during summer.
"Our customer base now
includes people from Point
Turton, The Pines, Corny Point and
"While there is no doubt these
areas are growing at a rapid rate,
the community also has a high
proportion of elderly residents
and we saw a need to provide a
service to assist this age group in

pharmacy for personalised
consultations has allowed

free blood pressure checks,

syringes and needles at minimal
Other services include the
preparation of Webster-packs, a

"Right from the beginning our
aim has been to provide
personalised service and advice in
addition to all the traditional
products people have come to
expect from their pharmacist and
pharmacy," Siva said.
"We have also increased the
range of giftware, perfumes and
cosmetics in stock, with monthly
catalogue and in-store specials

which was once organised by the Lioness Club of Yorketown and
District. Entries have been received from St Columba's Memori-
al School, community groups and individuals. The festival is the
start of a busy few days for the association, with the decoration
of the town's main shopping street next on the agenda then

Christmas Tree Festival
returns to Yorketown
Moonta festivities revamped
MOONTA'S annual Christmas
pageant and carols will be bigger and
better this year with something for
everyone, particularly the children.
The festivities will be held on Sun-
day, December 16, starting at 4pm
with the KooKy Kidz Christmas Mar-
ket in Queen Square.
For the first time, the Moonta and
District Progress Association has
engaged Cool4Kids who will provide
full-on fun between the pageant and
Entry, including to the markets,
will be free.
A large selection of quality foods
will be available, mainly run by local
sporting and community organisa-
tions, ideal for those who would like
to put their feet up and enjoy a snack
or a complete picnic-style meal in the
ambience of the town's beautiful
The pageant starts at 5.30pm and
makes its way from the community
activity centre on Military Road, past
the bowling club and down George
Street to Queen Square.
Many local clubs and characters
feature in the pageant and, of course,
a highlight is when Santa comes to
Once in his cave in the square,
Santa will be available to meet the
boys and girls and discuss their wish
list for this year's Christmas stock-
The carols will begin in the square
"The Moonta and District Progress
Association has had a busy year and
would like to thank the many volun-
teers and members who have con-
tributed to the success of our activi-
ties," president Peter Thompson said.
"We would also like to thank the
District Council of the Copper Coast
and all staff involved in the timely
replacement of the George Street ban-
ner poles which now proudly carry
our Christmas garlands."
DID you know the first Christmas
carols by candlelight can be traced
back to Moonta?
In the lead-up to Christmas, as
the miners were returning home
after a hard day's work, they would
gather on the street corners wear-
ing their helmets with candles on
them and sing Christmas carols.
"So, you see, carols by candle-
light were actually created in
Moonta," local carols coordinator
Graham Sobey said.
"To recognise this, we will be
having a special re-enactment dur-
ing the carols, we will turn off the
lights and five or six male singers
will light up candles on their hel-
mets and sing carols on stage."
The Carols in the Park will start
at 7.30pm in Queen Square on
Sunday, December 16.
