YOUNGSTERS made sure they got what they wanted when they went to see Santa under the tree at a special grotto.
The Community Shop in St Luke’s Terrace, Pallion, hosted the event before Christmas, and hundreds of excited children turned up.
They paid £2.50 to spend time with Father Christmas. The kitchen area of the venue was transformed into a magical grotto scene.
Chairman of Ford Pallion and Millfield Community Project Olwyn Ford said: “It’s our first year doing this so it’s been a bit of a test but we’ll definitely be doing it again. “It’s something which has never been around here before but we’ve had excellent feedback and the kids and parents who have come in have loved it.”
