The park lake is frozen over so Santa can land ok
Children will get the chance to tell Santa what they would like for Christmas when he comes to Queens Park in Crewe.
A grotto will open to youngsters on Sunday, December 5, from 4.30pm and then on each Saturday and Sunday leading up to Christmas between 10am and 4pm and on Wednesday, December 22.
Entry to the grotto, next to the children’s play area, costs £1 and includes a small gift, with all proceeds going towards the Friends of Queens Park Group, which is organising the grotto along with Crewe and Nantwich Lions Association.
Councillor Andrew Knowles, Cabinet member with responsibility for health and wellbeing, said: “It is good to know we have some fantastic local organisations working to make Christmas a magical experience for Cheshire East residents and to improve community life.
“I thank the Friends of Queens Park Group and Crewe and Nantwich Lions Association for their dedication.”
Councillor Betty Howell, ward member for Crewe South, said: “Monies raised are going towards the refurbishment of the Burma Star Memorial, so there is a lasting tribute and remembrance to those who gave their all and who should also be remembered at this time of year.”

Anyone wishing to attend the next Friends of Queens Park gathering, which is a festive social meeting, should make their way to West Lodge on Tuesday, December 7, at 5.30pm.
