Father Christmas will know the names of all the babies at the Kiddycraft mother and child group, as mums made personalised Santa sacks for their little ones.

Jennifer Flint from Chafford Hundred, who runs the group in Dunelm Mill, Lakeside Retail Park, said: “It was a lovely festive atmosphere and all the babies were so good. We made the sacks from ribbon and felt designs and decorated them with bells and baubles. Everyone went home with a finished piece. It is especially lovely for first time mums who love having a keepsake of their baby’s first Christmas.”

The group meets every Tuesday. For more information call Jenny on 07757 173415.
