Inglewood Lions Christmas Parade

Saturday 9th December- 12 noon
Get your thinking caps on now for a float! Theme is Santa Land
 A parade depends on businesses, community groups and schools making this a community project and sharing Xmas joy with each other and for all the members of our community. Please show us what a great community we have.
It will be going around one block like last year so we don't interrupt business patronage.
With road closures we let cars into Shoprite for shopping, please do not abuse this by all parking in their car park when not using the facility. It makes it harder for us. Same with Z station, we let people in for petrol, but they must follow instructions for exit for the safety of all.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Register your float entry with Peter Winter

Inglewood Town Message Board

Local energy provider, NOVA Energy is now the supplier of electricity to the Inglewood town messageboard. Under an agreement reached  between NOVA Energy and the Inglewood Rotary Club, NOVA Energy has agreed to support the sign and message board because of it's value to the community. The time as displayed at the top of the board is synchronised with the World Atomic Clock and the Temperature is digitally recorded at the sign, in the shade and 2m above ground level and is accurate to within half of one degree. The Annual Average Daily Traffic Volume as published by the LTSA for 2009 for that part of Rata where the sign is situated was 11,079 vehicles per day, so visibility is very high and many commuters take a keen interest in what messages are displayed and what the outside temperature is (everyone believes the temperature when it says -3 degrees but never believe it when it says 33 degrees!).
