Children at Eaton Socon Pre School were delighted when Father Christmas stopped by their Christmas Fair last Saturday (November 30).

More than 200 parents, children and members of the public watched him arrive on horse and carriage, before making his way to his grotto where children had the chance to meet him and receive a gift.

Other activities included games, a raffle and face painting, raising more than £1000 towards updating the school's IT equipment.

Yvonne Bates, Health and Safety Officer at the pre school, said: “It was very successful and very exciting.

The children loved it – they were very excited when they saw Father Christmas.”
