CHIDREN throughout Cheshire are invited to share what they love about their grandparents at a magical story-telling event organised by Inspired Villages Group.

‘Capturing Christmas’ takes place at Gifford Lea, Inspired’s luxury retirement community in Tattenhall, near Chester, on Saturday, November 24, from 2pm to 5pm.

Schools throughout the region will be hand delivered baubles for children to decorate and fill with a special message for their grandparent or older relative. They are then invited to Gifford Lea, with their families, to hang their baubles on the Inspired Christmas tree at the ‘Capturing Christmas’ event.

On the day, every child, parent, grandparent or older relative may visit the grotto for a magical Christmas story - told by Santa’s elves.

There will also be complimentary mince pies, hot chocolate and mulled wine and all ages will receive a gift. Plus, visitors may tour the village and discover more about the luxurious accommodation and exceptional facilities at Gifford Lea.

For children whose schools aren’t taking part, parents and grandparents may call to book themselves and their little ones in, with plenty of baubles on site to decorate on the day!

James Cobb, director of Inspired Villages Group, said: “Children and grandparents have a unique relationship and what better time to celebrate this than at Christmas.

“The ‘Capturing Christmas’ event will give families the opportunity to get together for some magical festive fun. They can simply drop in on the day to add their bauble to the tree or stay longer to enjoy the storytelling and seasonal treats.”
