All the children turned up today with their Christmas outfits on and they all looked festive,and looking forward to their party.
My first sight made me giggle as I got out the car to enter the building, when here comes little Charlie in his pram with antlers on his head so cute he looked.
On entering the the building all the children was greated with Jon our balloon modelling man
Who was put through his paces with requests of rudolph haha
We then went onto making party hats,
With prizes for the best hats
After the hat making the children then went onto enjoy pass the parcel,
When all the the party games was over it was time for a
Presentation from Allan Cocken
A Rotary member who gave a lovely speech and presented Jane Dawson myself with a cheque for the sum of £300
Thank you very much Allan for suggesting our group for these funds.
We was then greated by our mayor of hynburn Who welcomed all our children to their party and told them all to have a
we drawn a name from a hat to present the flowers
Our flower girl was Gorgia one of our new Vics members.
It was then time for our mayor to judge the best party hat
There was a first and second price won by Ellie McMullan
And Charlie Mcvicker.
After that it was almost time for Santa and his real rain
deer which the children did not know about.
We started with choosing out bells and shakers
And sang as load as we could to jingle belles while
Santa and Rudolph walked down Bank street
Accrington with Heath kershaw from wellybobs farm Darwen
As we entered the building their was silence as the children was told their was a real Rudolph
With Santa this year, I along with lots more parents and
family and friends had to hold back the tears.
Santa took his seat with Rudolph beside him
Whilst all the children sat so well behaved
Waiting for their name to be called, and their chance to stroke a real rain deer with their picture taken.
Everyone opened their presents, whilst cameras snapped.
We then sang goodbye to Santa and Rudolph with Rudolph the red nose rain deer song.
It was then time for the party food to arrive and how nice it was
From Scoobie snacks in oswaldtwitle, all the children and parents tucked in with the pulling of crackers also
We then heard of a birthday boy little Charlie
Who was two years old today, a lovely cake was organised
With train candles whilst all the children sang happy birthday to him.
To compleat our morning our mayor of Hyndburn
Carried out our raffle for us which £80 was raised.
Adam one of our parents went out with a bag like Santa came in with winning a total of 9 presents
All I can say Adam is u could of made the even Ten.
