FATHER Christmas has got some time off North Pole duty so he can visit the children of Haslemere this December.

 The Haslemere Youth Hub is hosting its first Christmas Extravaganza on December 9. So come along and enjoy kids arts and crafts, kids and family stalls, festive treats and more, all free! 

The extravaganza is from 2pm to 5pm and while it is free for the fair, Santa grotto tickets are available from £3.
