Santa’s Grotto - Wayfarers’ Arcade 2011
This year is the fourth time that Southport Lions have taken on the very important
task of looking after Santa Claus while he is visiting Southport. Among many demands
on his time, the Big Chap pencilled in several visits to the town, and he was at
the Wayfarers’ Arcade each weekend between the end of November and the start of Christmas
Week. This year, again, we have welcomed back a number of the boys and girls, and
their parents, who have visited Santa in his Grotto on the previous three occasions.
Santa was particularly pleased this year because not only did most of the boys and
girls know the secret of leaving out a carrot for Rudolf, and a mince pie and a glass
of something nice for Santa, but they knew the names of all the other reindeer. Well
done! But don’t forget, there may be a test next time!
So, it is time for a big THANK YOU to all those who visit Santa at the Grotto. The
money which you help us to raise goes towards buying the Christmas Parcels which
we distribute to some of our fellow citizens for whom Christmas is less than festive.
