The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

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.
