The Petersfield Bookshop in Chapel Street recently opened it’s doors for families to meet Father Christmas as part of a festive fundraiser.

Christmas characters showed local families & visitors to the wider Petersfield Town Christmas Festival into Santa’s Grotto nestled between the book shelves. Owner John Westwood tells Jo Gray about his childhood Christmases whilst fellow Shine Radio volunteer Andy Catto met Santa’s helpers on the day.

The event took place on Sunday, 10 December. All donations will go to the local Air Ambulance Service.
