grotto - Santa Claus with his Santa post box

Santa’s annual Grotto in the attic of Nantwich Bookshop has had to take an enforced year off!

But he plans to return in 2021 – and is inviting youngsters to use his replacement postbox instead to write to him.

Children can still post their letters to Santa in the post box inside the High Street venue.

Post your letters by Friday 11 December nd address them to: Santa/Father Christmas, Santa’s Grotto, Reindeerland XM4 5HQ.

Please include your full name and address in your letter.

The Santa Post box is based on Emma Yarlett’s joyfully festive Christmas book “Santa Post” which sees Santa solving a Christmas emergency – the letter he has received from a young girl named Amy is damaged and he can’t work out what gift she should receive.

Santa’s message when he recently visited Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge:

Steve Lawson, Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge, said: “It’s really sad that Santa cannot visit the Bookshop’s Grotto this year, but we were very lucky that he could come to the Bookshop when it was safe for him to do so to pose for a photograph.

“He has also sent a special video message from his Grotto above the Bookshop.”
