FUN is promised to be had by all at a free family Christmas event later this month. 

A community hub, in Clovelly Road, will host festive arts and crafts, games, a disco and a chance to meet the big man Santa Claus himself. 

The event is being hosted by Big Worle - a resident-led charity with National Lottery pushing to operate with locals in the area directly on issues that matter to residents. 

A spokesperson said: "You do not want to miss out on this free special get together.

"Visitors will enjoy Christmas-themed activities such as pass the parcel, a disco and have the chance to meet Santa and take a little gift away too. Refreshments and nibbles will be available, and donations are welcomed for all offers.

"We're also extremely keen to talk to locals to gain their insight about the future of the project, so come and have your say by filling in a ‘what matters to you’ survey to help Big Worle shape future priorities."

The event will take place on December 19 from 5pm to 7pm.
