Walsall youngster wins special ride with Santa 

Christmas came early for one lucky child on Saturday 26th November as four year old Mollie-Mai Roberts from Castlefort Junior School, won a special ride on Santa's sleigh after entering Victorian Arcade's 'Design a Christmas Stocking' competition.

The competition, which ran throughout November, invited children aged 11 and under to draw, paint, colour or decorate a Christmas stocking of their dreams. Only one child could win the competition and Mollie-Mai from Walsall was declared the winner due to her unique design and attention to detail on her fantastic handmade stocking. 

As part of the prize Mollie-Mai was lucky enough to ride alongside Santa in his festive sleigh through Walsall town waving and spreading festive cheer to the hundreds of admirers out to get a glimpse of the big man himself. What's more, she was also treated to a sack full of presents including a number of arts & crafts goodies courtesy of the shopping centre.

If that weren't enough, Mollie-Mai's school, Castlefort Junior School, was rewarded with £100 to spend on festive decorations for their classrooms or materials for their art department.

Darren Griffiths, Senior Regional Facilities Manager of GBR Phoenix Beard for Victorian Arcade, commented:

 "Congratulations to Mollie-Mai for winning our 'Design a Christmas Stocking' competition. All the entries we received were truly fantastic so thank you to everyone who entered! I hope our competition has kicked off Christmas in style and I look forward to seeing the residents that come along to visit Santa in his grotto this December."
