Festive fever is set to officially kick off next week, with Santa, snowmen and carols all featuring at a celebration.

First Step is hosting its Christmas bazaar, where youngsters and families can enjoy visiting Santa’s Grotto and “Mr Snowman’s Wonderland”.

Members of the Shenfield Operatic Society will also be getting into the Christmas spirit by singing carols for everyone.

Michelle said: “The Christmas bazaar is a wonderful event – a great opportunity to start the festive season with a spot of gift shopping, carol singing and mince pies!

“We all look forward to the event every year and are keen to catch up with friends and supporters.”

The event will also feature stalls, games, tombolas, craft tables where children can create their own festive cards, face painting, refreshments and more.

Pop down to First Step, Tangmere Crescent, Hornchurch, between 1pm and 4pm on Saturday (November 21).

All money raised will go towards the charity’s work with Havering families.
