Santa Camp

   We have created Santa's Camp because we felt like the world had forgotten what Christmas was all about.   Everywhere we looked; there was commercialism and empty messages. It made us sad, like somewhere the love had got lost.
Our Santa Camp is simple, it's the real story of Christmas, told by wise men, shepherds and a star, introducing Baby Jesus. Hear the story of the first ever St. Nicholas, his gifts and the kindness they were given with. Finally find the joy of meeting Santa in his tepee, then spend time relaxing in the Wayfarer with your nearest and dearset. The real meaning of Christmas. 

Unfortunately, Due to lancashire being in tier 3, and to the uncertainty as to when we will change. we have sadly taken to decision to cancel this years santa camp and trial.
We do plan on having some santa related activity if W.Lancashire enters Tier 2 in the 2 week review.
