It was wonderful to see Santa Neil again in Black Rock for Christmas 2021.

Especially for “The Light the Rock” Bayside Christmas Celebrations. The children loved seeing him and followed him around everywhere with their parents (who were very happy to take family selfies and sing carols with performers on the Black Rock Foreshore)

We hope Santa Neil will be back for Christmas 2022 to help the community celebrate Christmas

The “Surprise” for  Montalto Winery, Restaurant and Piazza venues , families, staff and especially the children really enjoyed your visit and the lovely Mrs Claus.

Everyone was filled with such joy and Christmas spirit it really brought a smile to everyone’s faces which after the two years of COVID is AMAZING to see.

We at Montalto appreciate what you can do and we can’t wait to see you again. Thanks for an amazing day

Dear Santa 

I must say, I never expected to email you!Yes my 4 year old daughter is much more accustomed to Santa, but my little chap (22 months) is still working on that!

Thank you for bringing Christmas Joy to the Village a few weeks back. It was a wonderful celebration!

I’ve also taken a look at your website and will keep it in mind for other community events around this festive time of year.

All the best for final preparations and a safe sleigh journey on Christmas Eve!

Have a wonderful Christmas

Santa Neil 

Thank You so much, you were the best Santa!.

My Grand Children could not believe it when you rang the door bell and walked in ringing your bell. My mum even thought you were a “good sort” (I think you have a big fan with her).

Thank you very much for making 2021 the best Christmas for 4 generations  of my family we have some awesome photographs that we will keep forever,

Thank you and we are looking forward to seeing you at Christmas 2022

Dear Santa Neil

Oh what a night in Black Rock!

Thank you to you and the beautiful Mrs Claus for collaborating with the Black Rock Traders Association to create a successful event – LIGHT THE ROCK which officially opened Bayside Christmas. 

Our community embraced this special event and it was what we needed after being in lockdown for so long.

We look forward to working on future activities in our beautiful village and foreshore.

Wishing you and your elves a very Merry Christmas and happy new year 2022.

Thanks Again

The Black Rock Village Traders Association Committee.
