Deck The Mall - Central West

With Christmas just around the corner and Melbournians eager to reconnect after seven months of lockdown, Central West Shopping Centre has come together with community groups, locals, schools and charities to spread some festive cheer via a beautiful installation of handmade stars decking the mall.

Over 2,000 hand-decorated stars have been installed throughout the centre, showcasing the true meaning of community. On each star, members of the community have written a word that describes their experience during the 2020 lockdown, encouraging the sharing of feelings, thoughts and attributes that helped each and every one of us through an extremely tough year.

To spread some further joy this festive season Central West will be creating a Community Cookbook that is filled with the favourite Christmas recipes of the community. The Community Cookbook will go on sale, with all proceeds donated to the 300 Blankets Soul Kitchen, a local charity at the Braybrook Community Hub. Soul Kitchen aims to provide nutritious food and address social isolation by developing a positive and safe community for individuals and families at risk of experiencing homelessness.

A must-see for locals and visitors, the star installation will be displayed at Central West for all visitors to enjoy from now until Christmas.

Where:      65-67 Ashley St, Braybrook
When:       until 25th December, from 9am to 5pm
Cost:         free
