SANTA is bringing his festive cheer to children right across the county as the countdown to Christmas Day gets closer and as always the youngsters visit him in his grotto to tell him what presents they would like for Christmas.

Hereford Lions Club have been helping Santa in his huge task for 30 years and the Gracie family from Lugwardine were amongst those who visited their Santa Grotto at the Oakchurch country store at Staunton-on-Wye.
