TWO donkeys will join Santa at Monkton Elm Garden Centre’s Christmas grotto.

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

Norma Moore, general manager, said: “We’ve had donkeys for the past eight years and they’ve always proved very popular with visitors.”

Entry costs £5 per child, including a gift, and all profits go to the Children’s Hospice South-West.
