Plenty in final edition of the Community Advocate for 2012

THE end of the year is fast approaching. Be sure to grab your copy of the final Community Advocate for 2012.

There's plenty in next week's edition to keep you and your family busy throughout the summer holiday season.

We're now well into summer and we're not the only ones feeling the heat. We speak to a local mechanic with 37 years experience about how to keep your car in top form throughout the steamy weather.

From paintwork to timing belt maintenance, you're bound to learn something new and hopefully prevent an unwanted breakdown.

The Advocate also brings you a tonne of ideas to keep the kids entertained and the parents sane through the school holiday period.

There's a great range of educational activities happening in the beautiful Tondoon Botanic gardens.

Kids can get their hands dirty at the Bunnings Warehouse DIY workshops, and as always, the libraries throughout the region have a ton of fun and free activities that are sure to delight.

As always, there are plenty of photos portraying the best of sport, community events and community news.

On behalf of the Advocate team, Merry Christmas. See you in 2013.
