Christmas 2020
Magic is made at Christmas
2020 has been a challenging year for many, with lives altered and changes made to accommodate our new reality. But alongside this challenge, reflection has inspired hope too.
Published 09 November

Our connection to our community has deepened and together we have rallied to provide support for those most in need. While we understand here at Woodgrove that Christmas may look a little different this year, we hope you’ll join us to celebrate what makes us all strong. Finding joy in everyday moments, rekindling our favourite family traditions and seeking out simple pleasures wrapped up with plenty of cheeky festive cheer.


Santa Photography

Santa is about to set off on his annual journey from the North Pole and is looking forward to meeting the wonderful families of Woodgrove! He’s loaded up his sleigh with plenty of hand sanitiser, trained his helpers and reindeer in social distance protocol and has graduated from a quick course in online zoom calls. He’s also cancelled queuing, preferring to offer online bookings so children can visit him safely this year. There are a range of photography packages to choose from with a convenient option to pre-pay, just be sure to make your date with Santa early as he is expected to be in high demand.

So, with Santa well and truly up to speed when it comes to celebrating Christmas safely,

That's right, 'zooming' has been phenomenon in 2020, with everything from meetings to weddings going online, so now we've up-skilled Santa in video conferencing too.

Woodgrove invites customers to say 'a little thanks' this Christmas

As we near the end of a year like no other, Woodgrove is asking its community to come together and say a little thanks for everything they're thankful for this Christmas season. 

Woodgrove Centre Manager Kylie Robertson said the important of community connections is more apparent than every this year. 

"To celebrate our community this Christmas, we're inviting customers to share a picture or words with us about what they're grateful for this year", Kylie Robertson said. 

We'll then create a wall of thanks in the Centre to reflect on these moments together.

We also encourage our community to share their thanks virtually with friends, family and neighbours using the hashtags #alittlethanks and #wallofthanks.

The wall of thanks will be located at the Woodgrove Food Court from 1 Dec to 30 Jan 2021.

Our commitment to a safe Christmas

Our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our customers, staff and retailers is our primary priority, so we will continue to implement and maintain a number of precautionary measures to help keep our community safe this Christmas. 

These include:

  • A strengthened focus on disinfecting commonly touched areas.
  • Positioning of hand sanitiser stations at key points throughout the Centre.
  • Installation of signage and floor decals across parts of the Centre, reminding our community to keep 1.5 metres between themselves and others at all times.
  • Reminding our community to adhere to government mandates to wear a face covering while outside of the home, unless there's a valid reason not to.  

While our team focuses on protecting the safety and wellbeing of our community, we need you to play your part as well. Let’s always work together to ensure we each practice safe social distancing during your visit to the Centre and keep a minimum of 1.5 metres between yourself and others. It’s also important that we all maintain a high level of personal hygiene, and we encourage our customers to take advantage of the hand sanitisation stations located throughout the Centre. Please also wash your hands regularly, cover your coughs or sneezes with your elbow, and most importantly, stay at home if you feel unwell.
