Thurnscoe Library was transformed into a cracker of a Christmas attraction.

SANTA’S Grotto was decorated and 200 presents wrapped for visitors to the village’s celebrations on Saturday.

Big Local Thurnscoe led the event and development worker Alison Vint said: “The team were fantastic and carried out all the tasks with great enthusiasm.

“Whilst we have an amazing team of BLT volunteers, we just don't have the time to do everything and we are so grateful to Victoria Oliver and her team at Barnsley Council’s business velivery team for choosing us as their organisation to support this year.”

Entertainment was provided by Thurnscoe Harmonic Male Voice Choir and Barnsley Metropolitan Band and children were able to write those all important letters to Santa.

For the first time, Thurnscoe has Christmas Lights along the main road bought by Big Local Thurnscoe with support from Balmoral Tanks, whose boss Bryan Bentley from Balmoral Tanks was on hand to switch on the tree lights.
