Visit From Santa?

Is anyone wanting a visit from Santa this year? Do you know what you would like him to bring you? If you’ve answered YES to both questions then read on. I had a chat with Santa on Monday and he is starting to get really busy with his elves in the North Pole right now making toys for all the children who have been really good this year. If you want to be one of the first in the queue for a visit from Santa on Christmas Eve then pop along to the Barton Bash on Saturday 13th October at the Neighbourhood Centre between 12 noon – 4.30pm and write him a letter with your list – as long as its not too long as he has to make toys for thousands of children all around the world. And don’t forget to include your address so he knows where to visit, and I will make sure he gets all the letters when I see him again at the end of October. He may even leave you a little gift at the Bash if you’ve managed to write a good letter!!
