FATHER Christmas, his elves and other volunteers will be bringing a fun-packed event to celebrate the festive season at Pershore Children’s Centre.

The whole family is invited to join activity workers Sarah Minshull and Kimberley Avent in various festive tasks as well as singing song to welcome Santa Claus tomorrow (Thursday) between 4pm and 5.30pm at Blossom Vale Children’s Centre.

Ms Minshull said the event was being held to bring families closer for the holidays.

She said: "Our Christmas event encourages families to celebrate and have fun together in a safe and caring environment.

“It's fantastic to see the children's faces when our special visitor – Father Christmas - arrives at the children's centre to hand out small gifts."
