Kelsey Hall IfoldIFRA organised a Santa Parade around Ifold (which started and finished at Kelsey Hall) on Friday 20th December 2019 from 5.00pm to 7.30pm  

Each of the 5 stops was well attended and residents enjoyed mince pies (or sausage rolls/other nibbles) and mulled wine. But as always it was the children who made the evening so special;  watching them as they talked to Santa, and seeing the wonder and happiness on their faces, was a joy to behold!
