Mayor on song with Christmas carols
CHRISTMAS celebrations are in full swing across the city.
Children without a place to call home celebrated the festive season at the Fleet in Fletton, where they were entertained by Stripey Wipey and met Father Christmas.
Chief executive of Cross Keys Homes, Mick Leggett, said: “Christmas without a home is an unbearable thought for anyone, let alone children.
“This is why we want to bring some festive cheer and a smile to the faces of the children in our hostels.”
The housing group also marked Christmas for older residents with bingo at Larch Grove when they welcomed the Mayor of Peterborough Cllr Paulathacker.
She was also busy carol singing with the Fenlands Family Church outside the Rose and Crown pub inthorney.
Meanwhile Stephanie Carr, runnerup in the ET’S Supertots competition, got to meet Santa at Serpentine Green, in Hampton, to cheer her up after she missed the original awards ceremony.
Pupils had an audience of shoppers when they gave a Christmas performance. The children from Dogsthorpe Infants school sang carols at Sainsbury’s in Oxney Road.
