FATHER Christmas will be the special guest of an annual Winter Fayre for families.

It takes place at Lloyd Park Children's Centre in Walthamstow on Sunday December 2 from 11.30am.

The event will feature a festive grotto in Santa's honour, games including pin the nose on Rudolf the Reindeer, and craft activities such as Christmas tree decoration making.

There will also be music, a raffle, refreshments and a variety of stalls.

Sheila Errington, Business Manager of the centre said: “Our Winter Fayre is an opportunity to bring families together for an affordable but fun day out and, importantly, the event raises valuable funds that we can use to keep the organisation sustainable and to support children and families in the area.”

Entry is 50p per person. Admission to Santa's grotto is £4 and includes a gift and photo memento.
