Santa’s Arrived at Toad Hall

Santa arrived at the Toad Hall Garden Centre this morning and took up residence in his beautiful new grotto. He was there with four of his helpers and staff from Toad Hall to welcome his first visitors. Lynn from Toad Hall and Anna from First Days cut the ribbon and Santa declared his grotto to be open. Santa is being helped by the Lions Club of Henley-on-Thames and proceeds from ticket sales will be supporting First Days and the Footsteps Centre, both very deserving local charities. Santa will be in his grotto on each of the four weekends leading up to Christmas.
