The first Santa of Christ­mas

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - SOCIAL SCENE - By Jack Troughton

Fa­ther Christ­mas made an early trip from La­p­land on Sun­day to open the Grand Christ­mas Fair at Salones Car­rasco in Javea.

The sun­shine at­tracted a large crowd to the ‘early bird’ event in aid of Help of De­nia and the Ma­rina Alta – and young­sters were quick to spot the man in red and white and rushed across to meet him.

One very ex­cited fan, pos­si­bly with a le­gal fu­ture at the Bar, tugged at Santa’s robes to get his at­ten­tion be­fore as­sur­ing him: “I re­ally have been a good girl this year!”

Organiser Les­ley Clark said ad­mis­sion to the event was €1 per per­son. “I’m not sure how I de­cided to sup­port Help but I haven’t had a sin­gle word of crit­i­cism; ev­ery­one seems to be re­ally pleased.”

The sec­ond Grand Christ­mas Fair is staged at Car­rasco be­tween 11.00 and 17.00 on Sun­day Novem­ber 25 – a month be­fore the big day.
