Santa visits Dykes of Gray and Bertha Park
20th December 2023
Santa once again took the time out of his busy December schedule to pay a visit to the residents at Dykes of Gray and Bertha Park Village.
The Villages are each designed with community in mind and this year’s Christmas events were the perfect opportunity to bring local families together. Residents were treated to festive hot chocolate from a local business Casa di Gelato, a professional photo to commemorate the moment and of course, that special visit from Santa Claus himself.
The rain didn’t deter eager children from Dykes of Gray heading to the sales office to see Santa and the Bertha Park Community Hub offered a fantastic space for families to meet him with the local Bertha Park Premier shop manager donating mince pies for the occasion.
Local parents and residents at Bertha Park, Andy and Lauren McAdam, visited Santa with their little girl and said:
“The Santa event was just perfect and an experience my daughter will always remember. It was set up beautifully with decorations and a festive vendor outside and we were warmly welcomed. Santa was such a great man to meet and he was on top of his game; somehow he managed to recognise my daughter and called her over by name – beautifully done!
“The photographer was a lovely touch and they spent time taking snaps to show the photos to us and my daughter so she could re-experience the magic of Santa again. We chatted a bit with the hosts, and they were so encouraging to get involved and make sure we were at the next events. If this wasn’t enough, we were treated to a warm hot chocolate on the journey home.
“Events like these elevate Springfield to more than a housebuilder – into a homemaker and community builder. Take a bow Springfield and organisers!”
