No time of year is quite as busy as Christmas for the members of the Rotary Club of Sudbury as they prepare their annual Santa’s grotto, Christmas Tree Festival and festive concert.

The ever-popular grotto will be ready to welcome visitors to Tesco on December 13, then outside the town hall on December 18, at Sainsbury’s on December 19, Waitrose on December 19 and 23 (both at 4pm) and Roys on December 22.

The grotto will run from 10am on each day unless specified.

The Rotary’s annual Christmas Tree Festival will once again take place in St Peter’s from December 9 to December 14, with more than 90 trees decorating the former church.

The Sudbury Sings choir will lead the Rotary Christmas Concert at St Peter’s on December 17, starting at 7.30pm.

Entrance, which is by purchase of a programme, costs £10 and includes interval refreshments.

Programmes are available at the Tourist Information Centre in Sudbury Library, The China Shop in Gainsborough Street or on the door.

Prior to the concert, people are invited to name a star on a tree of memories in St Peter’s and attend a blessing of the tree. The ceremony will begin at 5.30pm.

All funds raised from the events will go to supporting the club’s chosen charities for the year.
