YOUNGSTERS are being invited to attend a free grotto at Studley Garden Centre.

The garden centre, in Henley Road, Mappleborough Green, is holding the grotto on several days in the run up to Christmas.

At the grotto children will have the chance to meet Santa and have their picture taken with him.

Youngsters will receive a sticker set.

They can also take a selfie on Santa’s sleigh and enter a free elf hunt.

Photographs will be available to purchase, and the photos can be used in a keyring, bauble, magnet, snow block or snow globe.

While entry to see Santa is free Studley Garden Centre is welcoming donations to the two charities being supported, Molly Olly's Wishes and Greenfingers.

The grotto will be open betweem 11am and 3pm every weekend from plus December 21 to 23 and Christmas Eve 11am to 1pm.
