More than 17,500 people passed through Santa’s Grotto at Frosts Garden Centre as it welcomed a record number of visitors this year.

In addition, 12,000 people have shown their talents on the garden centre’s ice rink as people make the most of the festive season.

Every year Frosts go all out to decorate the centre and this year they included a Santa’s Grotto, a real ice-rink and plenty of mulled wine and mince pies.

They have recorded strong Christmas sales as well and since the Christmas season started there on November 16 they have sold 5,600 baubles, 2,653 metres of tinsel, 896 sets of lights and 15,469 mince pies have been purchased in their restaurant.

The Managing Director at Frosts Garden Centre, James Frost, said: “This year we wanted to offer the ultimate Christmas experience with more activities and events than ever before.

“Footfall is up significantly on last year and we’re pleased that people are enjoying what we have to offer.”

The ice-rink is open until January 5 and tickets can be booked online by logging on to
