Christmas Crafts success…and Santa too!
The Christmas Crafts and Santa event that took place in the Breamish Hall on Saturday 28 November 2015 was a great success.
This is an annual event in Powburn and more people than ever attended this year. In fact, it was so successful that £490.00 was raised for good causes.
As usual, there were a number of Christmas crafts stalls and the light lunch of soup and bread roll, with a lovely cup of tea or coffee went down very well.

Santa came to Powburn
We were privileged this year to have an early Christmas visit from Santa. The children were so very pleased to see him and, as you might expect, every child had been very, very good this year. And so they were each given a present by Santa. Of course, they had to promise that they would continue to be good, that they’d go to sleep on Christmas Eve when their parents asked them to, and that they’s leave out some food for his reindeer when he came to leave presents at their houses.
All very well…
However, Santa got a little bit more than he bargained for with this little girl who was trying to convince him that she’d been good:
This little girl said she’d been good all year!
