Everything will be ready for Christmas and Santa will be at the Willow Brook Centre on 10th December looking forward to seeing everybody. He will be touring round Bradley Stoke on a number of evenings in December. For information as to his route, keep an eye on the Bradley Stoke Lions Club page on Facebook and listen to Bradley Stoke Radio who have been a great support.
