Santa’s early visit to hand out ice creams

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

FA­THER Christ­mas paid a visit to Prestbury to hand out ice creams un­der a bak­ing summer sun.

The un­usual sight of Santa hand­ing out treats in the town was a pub­lic­ity stunt for Mot­tram Hall Ho­tel, on Wilm­slow Road in Mot­tram.

A trio of staff from the hall donned a Santa, fes­tive elf and Christ­mas cracker cos­tumes as they stopped by with an ice cream cart to hand out gifts to sur­prised shoppers.

Mot­tram Hall is pro­mot­ing its Christ­mas party nights, as the task for work­ers and rev­ellers of or­gan­is­ing their own fes­tive par­ties looms ever closer.

The team was also pro­mot­ing Christ­mas breaks at the ho­tel.

Sa­man­tha Sur­ridge, sales ex­ec­u­tive at Mot­tram Hall, said: “When we de­cided to dress up as Christ­mas char­ac­ters in the mid­dle of a heat­wave in July, we weren’t quite sure how the pub­lic were go­ing to re­act to us, but the re­sponse we re­ceived was fan­tas­tic.”

“We were out to pro­mote our Christ­mas party nights and fes­tive breaks that we have avail­able this year and peo­ple re­ally got into the Christ­mas spirit.

“Every­one was re­ally thrilled with the Christ­mas treats that we were hand­ing out.”

“Each party night pack­age in­cludes a fes­tive din­ner, party games and disco.

“You can also choose to stay over with any of our party nights for a min­i­mal fee.

Mot­tram Hall also of­fers Christ­mas meals across the fes­tive sea­son, rang­ing from carver­ies, Christ­mas lunches and fam­ily feasts to cosy din­ners and glitzy gala balls.

Sa­man­tha added: “As well as Prestbury we took our sleigh-cart to Wilm­slow and Alder­ley Edge but in Au­gust and Septem­ber we will be go­ing to Mac­cles­field as well so there’s much more of Santa and his lit­tle helpers still to come over the next few months.”

The Christ­mas team will be us­ing Twit­ter to up­date their fol­low­ers on where they will be for their up­com­ing out­ings in Au­gust and Septem­ber, fol­low @DeVereMot­tram for full de­tails.
