SANTA dropped in at a Rowley Regis nursery bringing some early festive joy to youngsters as they tucked into their breakfast.

Children at the Rowley Village Nursery passed on their Christmas requests and heard how the reindeers were preparing for the big night.

Manager Pat Banner said: “ It was the first time we had done this and it was absolutely brilliant.”

Parents also stayed to breakfast with their children and help them make Christmas cards and calendars.
