Over the past two weeks Whiddon residents at Narrabri and Wee Waa have spread the Christmas cheer in a unique way.

Residents and their Whiddon group buddies from Narrabri’s Jessie Hunt and Robert Young homes decorated their doors for Christmas as part of the inaugural ‘Adopt a door’ event.

The doors were covered in wrapping paper, baubles, tinsel and more to create a wonderful, Christmas theme throughout the Whiddon homes.

Residents were encouraged to decorate their doors with items and photos which meant a lot to them.

And it was up to Narrabri Police inspector Robert Dunn on Wednesday morning to select the top three doors from the Jessie Hunt and Robert Young facilities.

Mr Dunn walked throughout the hallways and was impressed by the Whiddon group’s effort.

But Mr Dunn had to select a top three from both residences and after a bit of time to think the police
inspector came to a decision.

First prize from the Jessie Hunt group was awarded to Phyllis Shaw and her buddy Megan Fernance.
Second and third prize from the same residence was won by Virginia Coker and Tanya O’Brien, and Kevin Kirk and Lynsey Wilkins respectively.

In the Robert Young centre Teddy Phillips and Natalie Penny won the top prize.

Second place went to Shirley Davis and Kylie Guest.

Mr Dunn could not split the final two contestants and awarded an equal third prize.

Mavis Watson and Therese Tailby, and Ruth Leitch and Cathy Johnston were awarded the third place reward.
