Long way from the North Pole


Debra Miles, of Papanui Inlet Rd, kneels in an igloo she made out of milk containers, with husband Wayne.

Mrs Miles said she used more than 800 2-litre containers, sourced from Dunedin Hospital, to create the igloo.

It is part of their annual Christmas decorations, which also include cartoon characters and Santa’s sleigh.

The igloo took a few months to make, and was a hit with children already, she said.

“The excitement on their faces is why I do it.” PHOTO/REPORT: JESSICA WILSON
