Sharon Bayston, proprietor of Park Lodge said: “We were absolutely thrilled at the popularity of our Christmas events in 2012, and wanted to make our 2013 programme even bigger and better. As well as our live reindeers and Santa’s Grotto, our new Winter Wonderland store is packed with some amazing gifts and decorations specially brought in from Europe. The Christmas Fairs will add a really local flavour to the festivities and for something a bit different children can enjoy Supper with Santa. There really is something for everyone and we hope that families from across the region will come and join in the Park Lodge festive spirit.”
