Planning Christmas Capers

Now living in Rotorua, Canadian Jill Campbell, from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, is looking for other Capers so they can to get together for a céilidh or a drink at the pub over Christmas. Originally from Sydney Forks, Campbell has lived in New Zealand for eight years. “For many of us Cape Bretoners living away, Christmas is a time when we pine for home,” Campbell said. “I’d love to hear from anyone who has family contacts over here so we can get together, drink tea and listen to fiddle music together.” Campbell works for the Rotorua District Council as the youth projects officer in the community development office.
