Visitors will have the chance to meet Santa, join in the games and entertainment and enjoy a buffet in the WestRaven Community Cafe, all for just £3 each.

Cross Keys’ service manager for customer, community and stakeholder engagement, Kate Newbolt, said of the events: “Christmas is such an important time for families and we love being able to offer families the chance to have some quality time together amongst all the hubbub and rush of preparing for the big day.

“We also hope that people will enjoy visiting our venues and use this opportunity to see all the support services, courses and advice we have available to them, right in the heart of their communities.”
