Naughty Penguins and Festive Shopping - a great success!

Our third and final Penguin Hunt and Late Night Opening was on Tuesday 16 December and was very well attended by lots of excited children holding torches, and their equally enthusiastic parents/grandparents/adults!  It was dark outside and the lights were dimmed, so the Christmas lights and Ice Grotto sparkled even more magically than usual, and it was lovely to see children of all ages hunting high and low for our naughty penguins who had hidden Santa's presents!  Abbey would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported the evenings and made it such fun! 


  Our colony of not-so-naughty penguins are now available to buy, now Santa has got his presents back and forgiven them!

Some lovely comments from our two previous Penguin Hunt evenings:

"We had a great festive family evening hunting penguins!" - Livi, James & Archie

"Thank you, we had a great time looking for those naughty penguins.  My 2 year old loved it!" - Vicky Wood

"Thank you for the lovely Christmas Penguin Hunt.  An exciting event for the kids and Santa made it special" - Carol Kirk
