Butterfly Lodge Newsletter December 2018

Christmas Bazaar

Our Elves have been hard at work all year preparing for this year’s Christmas quest to find Santa. Come and meet Santa and his elves in the magical forest and help us spread some Christmas cheer! Monday 10th December at the Scout Hut 6pm – 8pm. To book your place on the magical Elf trail please call our chief Elf on 407172 (limited spaces available). Please dress for the outdoors. You will find Santa and his elves at:

Fylde Scout – Head Quarters, Activity Centre, Heyhouses Lane, Lytham St. Annes, Lancashire, FY8 3R0

We cannot wait to share this festive event with you and your families; we hope to see you all there. Santa Claus will be making a special appearance, a range of games and stalls, refreshments and much more. To help make the Christmas fair a huge success we are asking for help from our parents in donating a prize for the tombola, bottle and chocolate tombola and the raffle. Your help and support at these events is appreciated.

We are taking bookings for visits to Father Christmas and his special elf woodland trail!

Christmas Jumper Day

On Monday 14th December children are invited to wear their Christmas jumpers in aid of the national Christmas jumper day. Children will be joining in lots of Christmas carols throughout the day and other festive activities.

Pre School Nativity

The Pre-School children are very excited to be taking part in this year’s Christmas Nativity, which will take place at Lindale Methodist church on the Wednesday 12th December, at 2.30pm – 3.00pm. We would like to invite all parents and carers. Butterfly Lodge provide all the nativity costumes and if your child does not attend this day please make sure they attend the church for 2:15pm if they would like to join the nativity play.
