SANTA CLAUS is going green fingered this Christmas when he visits the Grosvenor Garden Centre.

Accompanied by his reindeer, Santa Claus will be visiting the centre this month to wish customers a Merry Christmas.

There will be a winter wonderland themed grotto until Sunday, December 23, where children can visit Santa.

The Grosvenor’s enchanting story time with Santa, will run until Friday, December 21 where Santa himself will read a Christmas story as visitors enjoy carol singing, stocking bursting treats and a visit to Santa’s grotto.

Tickets must be purchased in advance and are available from Grosvenor’s main reception.

The award-winning garden centre is preparing to celebrate the Yuletide season in style, with a host of exciting in-store events planned over the next few weeks.

Children are invited to find Jack Frost and receive a prize on Saturday December 15, Sunday 16, Saturday 22, and Sunday 23.

Jack Frost cut-outs will be hidden around the store and those lucky enough to find Jack’s magic snowflake, will receive an extra special prize.

And to ensure the festive fun lasts even longer, opening hours will be extended until 8pm on every Thursday and Friday before Christmas.

Grosvenor Garden Centre is on the B5445 in Belgrave, Chester. For further information, telephone Grosvenor Garden Centre on 01244 625200, e-mail: or visit
