THE North Shore Community Centre will host a Christmas party on Saturday and, not surprisingly, the whole community is invited.
The celebration, from 10am-2pm, will offer free activities for the kids, including a jumping castle, face painting, temporary tattoos and a lolly scramble with Santa.
For the adults there will be gift stalls for Christmas shopping, festive crafts and gardening demonstrations, as well as Christmas carols and music for all ages.
A highlight of the event will be a showcase of community groups that contribute so much to the North Shore area.
Community centre co-ordinator Shannon Embery said she hoped the celebration would become an annual event.
"We just think it's our responsibility as a community centre to be able to put on something for the community where they can all get together and have a really great day but not have to fork out lots of money," she said.
