Santa set for museum

First published in

SANTA will be visiting the Essex Police museum in Chelmsford on Saturday to bring Christmas cheer to families.

A grotto will be set up at the museum which is at police headquarters in Kingston Crescent, Springfield, between 10am and 4pm for children to meet Father Christmas.

Visitors will also be given a snow globe from Santa for them to decorate before filling it with water. Becky Wash, the museum’s curator, said it was exciting to have Santa coming to the building.

She said: “The museum offers families the chance to meet Santa without the long queues and there’s a lot to do while you wait including dressing up, fingerprinting and colouring in.

“A perfect opportunity to keep young children entertained in the run-up to Christmas.”
