Santa will be getting some help again this year from Ross on Wye Lions Club.
Members of the Club will be acting as ‘Santa’s little helpers’ at Pengethley Garden Centre on the 3 of the weekends leading up to Christmas.
Santa will be calling by to visit his home-from-home, a cosy grotto where he can talk to children, their parents and family about what they might like as a gift for Christmas. He may well be checking if they have been good – usually everyone tells him that they have! The Grotto is open from 11am – 3pm starting on Saturday 2nd December and will be open on 3 weekends, ending at 3pm on Sunday 17th December.
Entrance costs £5 per child and as well as a chance to talk to Santa, children are given a gift to take home.
The Ross Lions Club are very grateful to the Chris and his staff at the Garden Centre who make sure the Grotto is ready for Santa’s first visit and who enable the Lions to make money for their Charities and support of local people. In addition to visiting Santa, Ross Youth Lions (Leos) will be offering the opportunity to buy tickets in their Christmas Hamper Raffle. Thanks to donations there will be useful and luxury items to win and again, all the money they raise will go to the Leos Charities.
Like the Grotto, The raffle will run until late December so there will be plenty of chances to have a go!
