Stowlangtoft Hall prepares to welcome Santa and his reindeer to its Christmas Fair 2018
Staff and residents at a Stowlangtoft nursing home are preparing to welcome Santa and his reindeer to their Christmas fair this weekend.
Stowlangtoft Hall, in Kiln Lane, will be kicking off the festive season tomorrow, with more than 25 stalls set to offer everything from festive face painting to homemade Christmas gifts.
Visitors to the home will also have the chance to meet Santa Claus and his reindeer and have their photograph taken in his sleigh.
Sally Chilvers, home manager, said: “We are delighted to be holding the Christmas Fair again this year. Last year’s event was such a success and it is great to be able to build on that this year.
"Being able to secure real reindeer for the event is really the icing on the cake and something the residents at the home are really excited for.”
All the family are welcome to join in the fun for free, with activities running from 2pm until 5pm.
Claire Clifton, activities coordinator who has been preparing for the event for four months with fellow coordinator Lynn Bennington, said: “It’s great to be able to open our doors to the local community and welcome people into the home.
"We have been busy making decorations at activity sessions ready for Saturday. This is a big fundraising event for the home and a lot of hard work and planning has gone into making it really special.”
