Friday 2nd December was our annual Christmas light switch on event, attended by around 200 people.
The evening started with the formal light switch on of our garden trail. This years story was "Can you find Santa's pants?" our fabulous elves recorded the story for everyone to listen to and QR codes can be scanned, throughout the trail.
Elves were everywhere, taking families through the story and helping them to look for Santa's pants with lots of surprises and treats to find.
Then it was time to meet Santa, who was delighted to let everyone know they had made it on to the nice list.
We had lots of other activities for everyone to enjoy including feeding and petting some real reindeer, a choir, arts and crafts, magic carpet photo booth, a Christmas market, food and drinks and accessible bike rides provided by Cycling without Age.
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for last night's Christmas event. We honestly absolutely loved it - everything was perfection and the best Christmas thing I've been to. Our daughter was really comfortable and especially liked the reindeer and Carol singers. All of the staff did a brilliant job, the place looked brilliant, we drove home buzzing. Thank you so much.”
“I just wanted to send an email to thank everyone who was involved making the light switch on night possible. It was a fantastic evening and I personally just loved how fantastic staff were with the kids and how incredibly patient they are. You all do so much already but to go out your way even more with so much thought and effort is unbelievable and we are so thankful we were invited to join.
My daughter just couldn’t contain her excitement when she arrived.
What an amazing group of people!
"It was amazing, we all had a brilliant night thank you xx"
