SANTA MADE A SURPRISE VISIT TO WARREN PRIMARY TODAY


Santa usually makes an appearance at WAG’s Christmas Lights switch on event but unfortunately this couldn’t take place this year.

The children usually meet Santa in his grotto after the light switch-on. Rather than disappoint them he arrived at the school with a gift for every child in the school.

All the children (and the staff!) were very excited to see Santa



SANTA ARRIVING AT WARREN PRIMARY


Santa needed help to carry all the gifts to Warren Primary.

Santa and his helpers were met by Headteacher Paul Tibble before delivering the gifts to the classrooms.

SANTA SURPRISES SENIOR RESIDENTS


Santa was sad to hear that WAG’s Christmas Afternoon Tea for senior residents couldn’t take place this year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, as he enjoyed meeting so many of them last year.

Santa hopes the senior residents enjoyed his visit, and liked their gifts, and that he brought some early festive joy and happiness

THE CHRISTMAS TREE HAS ARRIVED


WAG's Christmas Tree has been installed on Bewcastle Road and awaits the lights being installed and switched on.

If you see the lights on, take a photo and share with everyone to help spread some festive cheer.

'Thank you' to the GBC staff who are working hard to ensure all the lights are installed and working in the WAG area.

IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK LIKE CHRISTMAS


Christmas Tree on Bewcastle Road

WAG’s Annual Christmas Lights are being installed and WAG’s Christmas Tree and Lights will soon be up on Bewcastle Road.

WAG thanks our 2 Nottinghamshire County Councillors, Pauline Allan and Michael Payne, for their very generous grants towards the costs of this year’s Christmas activities.

The remaining balance is being funded from WAG’s budget made up of resident donations and other fund-raising activities throughout the year. Thanks to everyone who has contributed.

Due to lockdown restrictions we can’t hold the usual switch-on event with choirs and other activities.

This year Gedling Borough Council will arrange a ‘soft switch-on’ of the lights once installed.

Despite the restrictions, WAG is planning other ways to spread some Christmas cheer to residents, whilst ensuring that everything we do is Covid safe. We’ll post more once these have taken place.
