Santa is coming…
Santa at the Woods is the final event in the Warley Woods Community Trust calendar. On Sunday 8th December Santa will ride though the Woods in his specially created Virgin Train and then will take up his place in his grotto at the Pavilion on Lightwoods Hill, ably assisted by elves, to greet the young people of Smethwick, Oldbury, Harborne and Quinton. Young people are asked to bring their torches to light Santa’s way through the Woods.
Santa will begin his journey through the Woods between 4pm and 4.15pm starting within the park at the drinking fountain near the Abbey Road entrance. He will be entertained there by members of St Hilda’s Church Choir singing carols. Then he will ride through the Woods to the Pavilion at Lightwoods Hill where children will have the opportunity to meet him and receive a gift (small charge). There will also be musical entertainment outside the Pavilion on Lightwoods thanks to Bearwood Baptist Church.
Cakes, mince pies, hot drinks and mulled wine will be on offer. The Trust shop will be open late selling cards, jigsaws calendars and other gifts and there will other craft stalls and local charities at the event. Many thanks to Virgin Trains who have sponsored this event for the third year.
There are just a few spaces left for ‘Simply Santa’ on Saturday 7th December where children can visit Santa in his Grotto but visits on 7th must be prebooked on 0121 429 2440.
