December 2013 NEWS.
Santa is in his Grotto every weeekend until Christmas.
Hundreds of good boys and girls have already been to visit Santa this year already. The big man has been overwhelmed with requests for toys, tablets, games and consoles. One little boy didn’t want a present this year – he wanted Santa to help the boys and girls in the Philippines who have lost everything. So we are going to help Santa out. We raised a magnificent £404.64 from our festive carousel and reindeer weekends thanks to the generosity of staff and customers. Poplars will top this up to £500 and see that it is sent to the disaster fund straightaway. Children can still visit Santa at Poplars every weekend until Christmas. A visit costs just £5. Each child will receive a gift and a drink of squash in Poplars Pantry.
Christmas Opening times.
We are open every day up to and including Christmas Eve. We aim to close at about 4pm on Christmas Eve and will reopen after Christmas on Friday 27th December at 9am. We are closed again on New Years Day but reopen at 9am on the 2nd January.

Premier Connectable lights.
Last month we told you about the battery powered durawise led lights. This month we have to tell you about the Premier connectable lights. This system is simply brilliant. You can now connect set after set after set of connectable lights. All powered from one plug. You can join upto fifty sets of lights together in one long span up to 400 metres in length. That’s enough for the biggest of houses, the tallest of trees, the longest of gardens and the mightiest of mansions. Each set comes with a plug, however if you are connecting one set to another you simply disconnect the plug using the simple twist connector and twist it into the end of an existing set. You can even mix up the sets if you want to, so add net sets to icicle sets to straight sets. All lights are led and have 100 per set. Each set costs £24.99. If you want to connect in different directions or have a gap then there are extension leads and multiway connectors too. There are even high powered led spotlights for security too. Simple but brilliant.
