13 pictures of families in Hartlepool enjoying magical Christmas party
It's the most wonderful time of the year – and children and their families threw themselves into the festive spirit at a sell-out party.
The Bishop Cuthbert, Clavering and Hartfields Residents Association gave youngsters an afternoon to remember with the event in co-operation with Hartfields retirement complex where it was held.
Around 60 local children joined in the festive fun along with their parents.
It was supported by local businesses Water Babies and Reactive Design which bought 75 selection boxes that were given to children as presents.
Entertainment was provided by Faces Galore while Santa himself also paid a visit.
It was one of a number of seasonal family parties organised throughout the year by the residents association and Hartfields resident Fran Charnock.
The association meets on the last Wednesday of the month at Hartfields at 6.30pm and new faces are welcome.
Our thanks go to the association’s Glen Hughes for sharing these pictures from the party with us.
