visiting all the children in Ross, Santa went to visit those
unfortunate enough to be spending Christmas in hospital.
I hitched a ride on his sleigh and followed him round the
wards of Ross Cottage Hospital. After he had finished delivering
a present to all of the patients, who were happy to see
him, he posed in the reception area for a photograph with
poses at Ross Community Hospital with Staff Nurse Rowenna Williams,
Sleigh Driver, Clive Beard, Colin Gray of the Carnival Committee,
Cat in a Hat. Carnival Princess, Paige Neville, Keane and Jack Neville
and Maisie Tucker.

stalls attracted visitors to this event, including a Teddy
Bear stall. On this stall there were hand knitted teddy
jumpers for sale that were made by Nell Badger who happens
to be a mere 94 years of age!. There were also several delicious
cakes for sale, which were baked and iced by Sue Kirby.
