Santa Claus set to jet into Air Station

Santa, together with his reindeer and elves, will be arriving jetting into Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre for a pre-Christmas visit this weekend

He is expected to touch down at 10.00 a.m. on Saturday (December 6) and again on Sunday (December 7) to meet children of all ages to ask what they would like him to put in their stocking on Christmas Eve. This is vital information so please come along and whisper your wish in his ear.

You can meet Santa, seated by the fire in the 1940’s house, a room decorated and furnished in war-time style but this will not be an austerity Christmas. You will not need your ration book and bananas will be in plentiful supply. All children will be given a bag of goodies for which parents will be asked to make a donation to the Fund for Old and Decrepit Elves.

The Heritage Centre will be open throughout Saturday and Sunday and admission is free to the families of children who have met Santa.

You will be able to see the work in progress as staff and volunteers prepare for next year’s opening. The new Lieutenant Robertson building is a busy place at the moment as the old and decrepit elves have put their toy making skills into making a replica of the first British aircraft to land in France in 1914.

Tea, coffee and homemade cakes will be available in the library.

Dan Paton, curator, said: “Happy Christmas from the volunteers at Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre.”
