“We are pleased to say that The N.U.R.S.E. charity Beckside Christmas Cracker event was a great success.”
“After weeks of planning and a lot of hard work from all the volunteers we brought Christmas to the Beckside of town.”
“The crowd were entertained by St Nicholas Primary School Choir who sang a selection of Christmas carols, around the Christmas tree.”
“There was an array of food stalls ,chestnuts and fun fair for all to enjoy. When darkness fell it was time to sail Santa down the beck, the boat was decked with fairy lights that reflected on the water which Made it look truly magical.
“Santa arrived to a rapturous applause and screams from delighted children and adults. He then got on his sleigh and was pulled to his grotto by his reindeer where he was greeted by a queue of excited children waiting to see him.”
“It was a great success as we raised approximately £ 1,900.00, it will be used on our last community project for 2016.”
Central to the event was a giant Christmas Tree that was erected outside the Foresters Pub. The tree had spent 13 years growing in Vera’s garden though had to be removed because of the damage roots were causing.
