Santa Arrives 04
Sue Provides the Elf Service
Looking at the Bunnies

On Saturday morning 19th November, the arrival of a VIP was greeted by an enthusiastic crowd of all ages — although some wondered whether Santa was turning a little soft in his old age, enjoying the creature comforts of his Bentley in preference to his draughty sleigh on this occasion!

But it seems that the reindeer were on a work-to-rule, due to a shortfall in their carrot fees from last year!

The Grotto will be open every weekend up till Christmas, from Saturday 19th November — Sunday 18th December.

The traditional grotto costs just £5 and is run by Haddenham & District Rotary Club with all proceeds going to charity.

Haddenham Garden Centre is also offering Christmas shopping with a huge Christmas and Giftware department including lights, decorations, real & artificial Christmas trees plus gift ideas for all the family — lots of unique items you won't find on the high street.
