For prep instructions and any questions please contact

Santa Sleigh

During Monday Group, starting from October 20th
We will be designing and painting the Royal British Legion full size Santa sleigh for the distribution of children's toys - you know what they say many hands make light work, so if you can come along and help that would be great!

The design needs to be simple but with some impact, we don't want to make it too busy a design. If you get a flash of inspiration can you let Meg or Liz know your ideas. Meg has all the pieces at home so she could tell you the exact size if you feel that you could draw something for us, although if you just give us some ideas, Liz could probably draw them up.

We will be working on the slegih every Monday until completion and will also post photos when it is finished.
