Ice skating in Southwater

SOUTHWATER Infant and Junior Academies have their own ice rink to draw the crowds to their Christmas Fair.

A snow machine, festive music and Santa’s grotto will continue the winter wonderland theme.

There will also be stalls selling hand-crafted and unique items to help finish off your Christmas shopping, as well as an adult tombola, a raffle with some fantastic hampers to be won, the ever popular jam jar stall, face painting and tattoo craft stalls, and Christmas trees and festive wreaths also on sale.

Father Christmas and his elves will also make an appearance.

Hot food will be on sale during the afternoon, as well as festive refreshments such as mulled wine and mince pies.

The fair, at the Junior Academy in Worthing Road on Saturday December 3, will open with a performance by the Infant Academy choir at 1pm and close at 5pm with the Junior Academy choir.

Visitors can book a 15 minute slot (£3 on the day, £2.50 in advance) between 1pm and 5pm, although early booking is advised.

Bookings must include your child’s name and the number of tickets you require.

The rink will also be open for private hire by the hour from 12 to 1pm and from 5pm to 8pm, ideal for corporate groups or children’s parties.
