Families Gloucestershire – November / December 2013


Welcome to the Nov/Dec issue of Families Gloucestershire.

To help with your Christmas planning…a visit to Santa is many children’s highlight of the season and you will find a guide to where he can be found on Pg 12.  To get you into the Christmas spirit, and some items ticked off your present list, take a look at the wonderful selection of Christmas Markets on Page 10. Gloucestershire also has a fantastic array of independent toyshops so please do shop local and support them. We pick some of the best on Page 11. The ‘What’s On’ guide includes where you can find your nearest lights switch-on, theatre and pantomime and holiday activities.

It was a real treat to visit the Scrapstore in Gloucester and get some inspiration from their gallery. Children will love having a go at making their fantastic Christmas Angel decorations on Pg 11. Thank you Lin and team!

Whatever your Christmas plans, I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
