Santa arrived in style at Squire?s Garden Centres

by | Nov 30, 2017 | Chains, News | 0 comments

Santa swapped his traditional sleigh for various quirky forms of transport when he arrived at Squire?s Garden Centres last weekend. He arrived on a Double Decker Bus, Horse & Carriage, Christmas Float, in Squire?s Heritage Van, an American Classic Car, and even in Lightening McQueen from the Disney film Cars! He came to greet crowds of excited children, and to open his Christmas Grotto.

Customers and their little ones can meet Santa in his magical grotto at Squire?s Garden Centres this Christmas. As well as seeing the faces light up with joy and excitement when they see Santa and receive a gift, they will also get a warm glow as you?ll be benefitting a local charity.

At Squire?s in Cobham, Hersham, Long Ditton, Reigate, Windsor and West Horsley entry to the grotto is free, and customers can donate as much as they like to the local charities that Squire?s support.

Entry to Santa?s grotto at Squire?s in Crawley, Milford and Twickenham is ?5, and ?1 will be given directly to the local charity that they are raising money for: The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre, The Samson Centre for MS and Richmond Carers Centre.

Santa?s grotto is open every Saturday 10.30am-4pm and every Sunday 10.30am-3.30pm from now until Christmas Eve, as well as the week leading up to Christmas at many Squire?s centres.
