Christmas Town for the Kids

Father Christmas

We’ll have to have Santa’s Grotto where groups of children can spend some time talking to St Nick himself and learning a little about how he got the job in the first place and all the trials and tribulations he’s had over the years getting millions of toys to boys and girls all over the globe without using Amazon Prime.

Mrs Christmas’s Cookery Classes

Over a half an hour session she’ll turn these young un’s into potential celebrity chefs.
