SANTA will arrive in style at a winter wonderland in Walford as the village hall is transformed for its popular, annual Christmas fayre next weekend.

Mulled wine and mince pies, carols, a beautiful Santa’s grotto, a range of brilliant craft stalls and tempting food and drink will be on offer for visitors to the Walford Village Hall Christmas fayre on Saturday, December 9 from 11am to 3pm.

Families are urged to get there by midday when Santa will make his spectacular entrance, which you will not want to miss. The grotto will be open from midday to 2pm.

For children, there will be face painting, fun and games including a tombola and raffle. The event will also boast many craft stalls, inside and outside the hall. These will range from hand-crafted artificial flower displays, Christmas decorations, cards, painting and jewellery to dog and cat festive treats and toys, and much more.

Mulled wine will be available from the Soup by T stall to get guests into the Christmas spirit.

There is no charge for entry but donations to the hall are welcome. There is plenty of parking on the site. Access to Santa’s grotto will be £3…with a gift.

Trustee Anthony Jones, who organised the event, said: “We were blown away with support at last year’s Christmas event and this year promises to be a great occasion for families. We can’t wait for Santa to arrive…families won’t want to miss him arriving at the hall!

“The hall is at the heart of its community, and we hope families will turn out to support us and have a great time as the countdown to Christmas gets under way.

“We have a range of great craft stalls, plenty of food and drink plus mulled wine and mince pies.

“We are looking forward to a great afternoon and we look forward to seeing you there.”

The hall is in Walford Road, Walford, very close to Ross-on-Wye–HR9 5QS
