As part of Operation Cracker, Officers, PCSOs and Police Volunteers from Eastfield Police Station are organising a Christmas Fayre in Eastfield.
It will be held at Holy Nativity Church, next to the Westway Open Arms, between 2pm and 5pm on Saturday 4 December, and will bring local people together through fun activities, workshops and stalls for parents, children and young people alike.
Opening the event will be the arrival, at 2.15pm, of Santa Claus who will be trading in his bright red sleigh for a ride in Scarborough Fire and Rescue’s bright red fire engine!
Among the many stalls and entertainments will be arts and crafts and face painting, a crepes and hot pudding van, Christmas sweets and treat and, of course, Santa’s grotto.
Children from Stephen Joseph Theatre and a ukulele band will also be putting on surprise theatre acts around the event.
PCSO Natalie Hayes, of Eastfield Police, said: “The Christmas Fayre is part of the ‘Springboard for Youth’ initiative which we have been running as part of Operation Cracker.
"It’s also a great opportunity for all the community to come together after the difficult time that we‘ve all been facing over the past 18 months.”
Welcoming the Christmas Fayre, Bernie Brown, Centre Manager at the Westway Open Arms, said: “We are very excited that the Fayre will be held this year in Holy Nativity Church in Eastfield, thanks to the partnership with both Westway Open Arms and Operation Cracker.
“It will be fantastic to see the community of Eastfield coming together after another difficult year.”
