First class link up to Santa

CHILDREN can send their Christmas wish lists to Santa via a Morpeth garden centre.

Heighley Gate Nursery and Garden Centre off the A697 is offering the free postal service to Father Christmas until Monday, December 12.

Any youngsters who write to Santa Claus will receive a personalised letter back from him 10 days later, which can be picked up from Heighley Gate.

General Manager of the outlet Roger Wale said: “Children will be able to tell Father Christmas what they would like this year and post their letters in our in-store post box.

“We will then pass them on to Santa and he will write a personalised response to each child, which youngsters will be able to collect from the garden centre.”
