FATHER CHRISTMAS ARRIVAL
Saturday 21st November 10am – 4pm
Working in partnership with Zoë’s Place, Belle Vale Shopping Centre will host ‘The Light a Life tree’ again this year and will have a traditional light switch on with performances by a local school choir and appearances from Bella the Bee.
The Light a Life tree invites the community to sponsor a light on the tree in memory of a loved one for a donation of five pounds and the contributor’s name is printed on a commemorative banner. Lisa Mitchell from Gateacre School, kindly arranges for the children from all the local primary schools to make Christmas baubles which are then used to decorate the tree. Family & friends of the school children are invited in to the centre to see their child’s creation.
Father Christmas will be arriving at the Centre and meeting and greeting shoppers with a sack full of chocolates. Our authentic Father Christmas will have children mystified and will happily pose for photographs.
