Love2Stay announces family festive programme

Meeting Santa at Love2Stay

Salop Lesure’s Love2Stay caravan park in Shropshire is gearing up for Christmas, with festivities due to commence on November 20th.

During the first weekend, visitors will be able to peruse the wares of more than 100 traders at the Shropshire Handmade and Creative Christmas Gift Fair.

It will coincide with the opening of a vast synthetic ice rink, which is due to remain at the site over the festive period.

On November 28th, the caravan park will become a mass of people all dressed up in Santa or elf costumes to raise money for a local charity.

The Salop Santa and Elf Dash will start at 9am and see families run or walk five kilometres in aid of the Lingen Davies Cancer Centre at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.

Participants will get a medal, as well as lots of fun memories to get them into the Christmas spirit.

The big guy himself will also be putting in an appearance, as Love2Stay will host a Santa’s grotto within its grounds, where kids will be able to present him with their Christmas lists.

There will also be a twilight trail around the park, complete with colourful illuminations to delight visitors once the sun’s gone down.

Laura Wilde, marketing manager at Love2Stay, said: “After little Christmas cheer in 2020, we are delighted to be hosting our full Christmas programme this year and introduce extra activities to really enhance the festive spirit at Salop Leisure and Love2Stay.

“We hope our exciting events will make the festive season magical for our customers and their families.

“In addition to celebrating Christmas in Shrewsbury, our exciting programme of activities aims to raise public awareness of the full range of services we offer at Salop Leisure and Love2Stay.”
