The big surprise at the Forbes North Schools as Community Centres (SaCC) Playgroup, CatholicCare Playgroup and Rhyme Time Christmas Party was that Santa made it through quarantine in time to bring some Christmas cheer to the party. The families were delighted to see Santa, who delivered Christmas cheer and books to all of the children. Santa’s helpers Tash, Maree, Candice, and Lucy were on board to help with delivering presents and providing some Christmas activities and morning tea. “What a lovely way to end the year,” said Maree Yapp from Forbes North SaCC, “I was so excited to see Santa, especially this year.”
Playgroups and Rhyme Time will be back in February in 2021 and there will be an activity every week day for families with young children. “I am looking forward to 2021 and working with the families again” said Tash Harris from CatholicCare. The team from Forbes North SaCC and CatholicCare look forward to working with the Forbes community again next year and wish everyone a very merry Christmas.
