The magic of Christmas will be brought to life for children thanks to a play gym’s story time with a very special guest.

Father Christmas will be taking time out from his hectic schedule to read to children at The Edge Play Gym and Café in Elland at two dates this month.

The man in red will be bringing his Christmas magic to the Story Time With Santa days on Friday December 19 and Monday December 22, when children can not only meet Santa and his elves, but can join in the festive singing, fun and have their photograph taken.

Tickets for the story time are just £5 each and each child will receive a gift and free entry to the play gym, before Santa heads back to his festive HQ at the North Pole to prepare for the busiest night of his year – Christmas Eve.

And children who attend the nursery at Water’s Edge collected more than 50 shoe boxes for underprivileged children.

Families have spent the past month filling the boxes with goodies such as toys, toiletries, food and treats for children who would otherwise have little else to put a smile on their faces on Christmas morning.

The boxes have been collected by members of the Rotary Club of Elland, which is working to distribute the boxes with Voluntary Action Calderdale.

For tickets to Story Time with Santa, please contact The Edge at Water’s Edge Children’s Day Nursery, Park Road, Elland, on 01422 373723 or email info@watersedgechildrensdaynursery.co.uk.
