Record-breaking numbers attend opening weekend of Santa’s Post Office
Santa’s Post Office situated on Sheffield city centre’s Chapel Walk, has been an enormous success on its opening weekend, with more than 1,200 children visiting to write their letter to Santa.
It was a joyful weekend filled with magic and fun. Parents looked on happily as children entered a magical world to write their letters to the big man before posting them into a magic letter box. Once posted, the children were able to watch their letters on an enchanted journey to Lapland.
Santa’s Post Office is an initiative funded by Sheffield BID as part of a wider strategy to support Chapel Walk businesses – helping to increase footfall and improve the appearance of the popular shopping area whilst nearby building renovations take place.
Sheffield BID Manager Diane Jarvis said: “It was great to see crowds of people descend on Santa’s Post Office for its opening weekend. Sheffield BID has pledged to support the businesses on Chapel Walk and this is just one way that we are doing that. The city centre really is an exciting place to be this Christmas with events and festivities happening throughout the festive season.”
For little ones who haven’t yet written their letter to Santa – there’s plenty of time to visit the elves at Santa’s Post Office. Elves are on hand to help children send their letter to Santa. Parents can watch as excited children post their letter in the Post Box and see their letter travel all the way to Lapland.
Santa’s Post Office is open between 11am – 4pm on weekends, and on Thursdays between 4pm – 7pm from 18 November until 23 December and then from 11am – 4pm everyday between 18 – 23 December.
