    Free parking and Family Fun in Fleet on 5 December!

    Fleet is hosting a fantastic festive family fun day, with Santa’s Grotto, face painting, Spot the Rudolph town trail, children’s craft activities and free parking throughout the town from 10am-4pm on Saturday 5 December, in support of the national Small Business Saturday campaign.

    As part of Small Business Saturday, local events company Fuse Projects is working with a number of organisations to hold a magical event in the Hart Shopping Centre that will encourage shoppers into the town centre on the run up to Christmas.

    For one day only, Father Christmas has specially chosen to fly into Fleet to visit his magical grotto, complete with enchanted singing elves! The venue in Hart Shopping Centre will be magically transformed overnight by the elves and will open between 10am-1pm and 1.45-4pm.

    To encourage families to explore the town centre’s shops, they can pick up a free Spot the Rudolph trail from the Centre, explore the town and then enter a prize draw, which Santa will draw at the end of the day. Lots of the town’s shops are also organising free mince pies, activities and treats for their customers.

    From 10am-4pm, children can pop along to the free Christmas crafts table and help a cheeky elf to create a huge Christmas banner and a professional festive face painter will be on hand. There’s also a chance to pop a letter to Father Christmas in the magical North Pole Post Box and see the elves hard at work in the grotto.

    Families can meet the merry cast of Fleet’s pantomime ‘Aladdin’, who will be visiting the Centre from 1-1.45pm. Thebestof Fleet team are also running a free prize draw to win a voucher to spend with a local business and there’s free parking all day in Hart Shopping Centre and all Hart District Council owned car parks.

    Jenny Atherton from Fuse Projects said ‘Small Business Saturday is all about shopping locally. Fuse Projects works with towns to breathe life into their high streets and this is another fantastic example of the local community pulling together to run a fantastic event.’
