YOUNGSTERS at a Crossflatts nursery had a visit from Santa.

He read to the children, at Wishing Tree Nursery & Pre-School, and handed out presents – to the youngsters and staff members.

His visit was part of a Christmas party.

Wishing Tree owners, Steven and Sally Robson, who opened the nursery in September, 2015, described the festive celebration as “our biggest and best so far”.

“The children absolutely loved Santa and as he was leaving they all sang Jingle Bells to him – it was adorable,” they added.

“It was a truly magical event.

“Santa’s kindness and generosity really shone through.

“We like to give the children extra special experiences which enable them to move on to adulthood hopefully achieving their dreams.”

The nursery, in Keighley Road, has around 70 children on roll.
