ADUR East Lions have joined forces with Hove Lions to give Santa a bit of help this Christmas.

Members of the two Lions clubs have been running a Christmas grotto at Mayberry Garden Centre, in Old Shoreham Road, Portslade, for the past few weekends.

There is still time to visit Father Christmas there, with the grotto open on Saturday and Sunday from 10.30am to 4pm, as well as on Monday and Tuesday from 10.30am to 1pm.

Susan Saunders, president of Adur East Lions, said: “You have not lost your chance to see Father Christmas before he dashes off to deliver all the children’s presents on Tuesday evening.

“It only costs £3 to see Father Christmas and receive a good-quality gift.”

She thanked Mayberry Garden Centre for building and hosting the grotto and said all profits would go to local charities.

The garden centre helps Adur East Lions throughout the year, with a charity bookshop. Books are collected and sold in the coffee shop.

Jonathan Tate, managing director of the family-run firm, said: “The Lions do great work locally and we are proud to support them throughout the year.”
