Santa’s Grotto

It’s one of the big set-piece events of the year. Tonight the lights go on at the Christmas Tree and Santa comes to town. It seems that Santa won’t be coming by fire brigade this year because of insurance problems.

However, it will still be a lot of fun. I should imagine that the queue of parents and children will already be building in the square waiting for Santa’s arrival.

When he arrives the lights go on and then he enters his grotto. All the children of the town will be there with their parents and they’ll take turns at going in to see Santa to get their presents.

The Town Clock used to always give out some free mulled wine.

It’s always a great occasion with lots of happy faces.

Get yourself down there!

Santa arrives at 6pm.
