Santa Claus in his Grotto - Holly Fair Wells Green

The annual “Holly Fair” at Wells Green Methodist Church in Wistaston has been hailed a big success, writes Jonathan White.

In the entrance hall there was a prize raffle, red, green and silver stall, and a tombola.

The stalls in the church hall included toys, books, costume jewellery, crafts, and Traidcraft goods.

The café offered refreshments for sale with soup and numerous cakes.

Santa Claus was kept busy in his Grotto providing gifts to all the boys and girls with the help of his Elf helper.

The event was staffed by parishioners and the 3rd Wistaston Guides (Wells Green Methodist Church).

Despite cold and wet weather outside, the event was attended by hundreds of people.
