All the way from the North Pole

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Clubs Round-up -

FES­TIVE vis­i­tors de­scended on the County Square shop­ping cen­tre from the North Pole to en­ter­tain shop­pers at the week­end. On Satur­day four cheeky elves made an ap­pear­ance, mak­ing bal­loon mod­els and invit­ing passers-by to sing karaoke. Bjorn the po­lar bear and his keeper Ur­sula vis­ited from the Arc­tic on Sun­day, ac­com­pa­nied by two snow princesses and two snow queens. Com­mer­cial man­ager Fran Burt said: “We were thrilled with the num­ber of peo­ple that came through the doors, it was re­ally busy de­spite the weather.”
