    Come along and have fun in the Minster School’s Nursery setting.  There will be a host of Christmas themed activities for little people to enjoy, including Christmas crafting, making Christmas music and a special hunt for Rudolph.  There will also be time for the grown-ups to meet, chat, have a cup of coffee, homemade biscuits and mince pies. 

    Admission is free and the event is open to all pre-school children aged two to four, but places are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.
