Christmas Special Post!

It's the festive time of year and for those visiting the Hub over Christmas, we thought we'd share some interesting connections between this year's topics and Christmas...

Please note: The Hub will not be moderated between December 24th and January 3rd so your comments and posts will not be publish. Team BNC will return on Monday January 4th.

It's good to switch off from work over Christmas, but if you looking for something to do, why not enter our Christmas competition? See the orange box on the right of this page.

Merry Christmas from everyone at the Burnet News Club!

We've been learning all about the Future of Work in this Issue, and it's important to remember that many people in emergency services, among many other industries, work over Christmas to keep us safe and keep the country going. How could you say thanks?
