TWO DONKEYS will be accompanying Santa at Monkton Elm Garden Centre’s Christmas grottos.

Santa’s grotto will open every Saturday and Sunday from 10.30am until 4pm until Sunday, December 23.

Norma Moore, General Manager, said: “We have had donkeys for the past eight years and they have always proved to be very popular with our visitors.

Entry is £5 per child including a gift but all profits will go to the Children’s Hospice South-West.
