SANTA Claus will be in his grotto in Halesowen town centre this weekend.

Youngsters will be able to meet Santa in his grotto at the offices of Halesowen BID, in the former Hobbs building off Somers Square on Saturday (December 18).

For £3 they will get to meet Santa and receive a gift from the man himself.

People can drop in from 10.30am till 3pm.

All proceeds go to Santa's Black Country Toy Appeal.

The grotto was open last Saturday (December 11) and was a huge success - with around 100 children coming along.

BID manager Vicky Rogers said: "It was really successful - we were really pleased with how it went.

"It was lovely for the children to be able to meet Santa in person.

"Last year we did the drive-thru grotto at Lifecentral Church, but it's not the same as meeting in person!"
