Newquay Towan Blystra Lions are helping Father Christmas settle in to his grotto at the Lighthouse Cinema as he gets ready to meet the town’s boys and girls.

“We’re really excited that Father Christmas has chosen to come to Newquay,” said Lions President Phil Bunt.

“His grotto is in a prominent location, n the foyer of the cinema and perfect for children and families, either watching a film or just passing.

“Father Christmas will be in his grotto most weekends, and is looking forward to hearing children’s Christmas wishes.”

Children can meet him for free, donations to the charity will be gratefully received.

Newquay Towan Blystra Lions Club is a group of volunteers that support good causes in Newquay and the surrounding areas. All money raised by the grotto help support these causes.
