Santa and friend

Santa and friend

The map in the Forum journal showing where Santa would be going must have been a good idea because lots of children came out to see him.

We are all children at heart and Santa is with one of the 'older children'.

There are enormous demands on our hard earned cash at this time of year and yet the good and generous folk of Shipston always dig deep into their pockets, even deeper than last year, to support the mainly local charities and good causes Rotary supports. We are so very grateful and so are the good causes we support
