Christmas has arrived already!! What a busy schedule our Christmas team have lined up for this year, to kickstart the festivities some our of seasonal characters switched on lights around the North East alongside the local Mayor. Santa and his elves had lots of fun meeting hundreds of children, listening to carol singers and handing out gifts to well behaved children. At one venue, Santa and his elf were joined on stage by Jedward, who all managed to get some great photos taken for the local newspaper. What a brilliant start to the Christmas season!
