Browns Plains police officers have been busy spreading the Christmas cheer throughout Browns Plains and Hillcrest.
In a very busy few days Constable Natalie Wilson and Constable John Poole visited Logan West Library for the ever popular ‘story time’ session, where they were greeted by some very excitable young readers who happily showed them how well they could sing Jingle Bells and Silent Night.
The young readers must have had their best singing voices on as Santa heard the music and decided to drop by for a surprise visit.
On Decemeber 18, the Browns Plains officers had the very special task of assisting Santa spread holiday cheer and to deliver lollies to the children of Hillcrest.
In its fifth year, the Santa Lolly Drive was coordinated by the volunteers of Hillcrest Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) and was well supported by local businesses.
Due to overwhelming requests from the local community, Hillcrest Neighbourhood Watch asked Santa to expand his journey this year, making this the largest Santa lolly drive Hillcrest has ever been part of.
Expanding the streets, Santa visited allowed more families and children to enjoy the afternoon while spreading the important message of cooperation between NHW and the police.
Santa was given a special entourage supported by ‘Vyv the Viking’ – the police all-terrain vehicle - driven by Senior Sergeant Michael Leafe and Constable John Poole, as well as from ‘Little Squirt’ – the fire engine from Logan House Fire Support Network.
