NEIGHBOURS in need of extra Christmas cheer could have their homes professionally decked out as part of a new competition aimed at a brighter festive season.

Synergy is calling for people to ‘Nominate Your Neighbour’ who has had a tough year and deserving of a surprise.

Four winners will have their homes decorated in Christmas lights and join the Xmas Lights Trail beginning in December.

They will also have their electricity bills paid for six months.

Synergy marketing manager Kelley Yeats said the inaugural initiative was developed to support the purpose of Lifeline WA and to spread the joy of Christmas to those who need it most.

“Each year we see the joy that decorations and light displays bring to kids and adults alike, so this is all about sharing that spirit and making Christmas a bit brighter for someone who needs it,” she said.

Nominations can be made until November 7, with voting open to the community from November 12-19.

The Synergy Xmas Lights Trail will list festive displays and allow visitors to create an itinerary of decorated houses to see.
