A magical winter in wonderland

PRINCESSES, a prince and Batman have enjoyed frosty winter wonderland Christmas events in Whitehaven.

A series of fun activities have taken place at the Chill Out Zone at St Gregory and St Patrick’s School.

They were organised by Sweet Disposition, an event planning company, which hired the school and held different fun activities.

A princess evening was held last Friday night where children dressed up as princesses and a prince joined the party too. They were treated to cake, pops and pick ‘n’ mix by Sweet Disposition.

A winter wonderland craft fair was held on Saturday and Sunday which featured a Christmas market with 20 stalls, a Santa’s grotto and a special appearance from Batman.

Julie Mahone, Chill Out Zone nursery manager, said over £400 has been raised at the events. The money paid for a special visit by two reindeers to children at the Chill Out Zone and the school in the lead up to Christmas.

Rachelle Chambers of Sweet Disposition said: “It was an exhausting weekend but it was absolutely brilliant. The children loved dressing up but such a good weekend. It was brilliant.”

She said one of the highlights of the weekend was on Saturday when Carlisle’s Stormtroopers requested the DJ play Psy’s hit song Gangnam Style and they danced to it in the middle of the Christmas fair.

“It was really amazing – a very surreal moment to remember!” she said.

Rachelle said she would like to thank everyone who was involved in the fair.

Additional thanks goes to Britain’s Energy Coast which gave her funding for her new business last year.
