MUSSELBURGH is to get a Santa’s grotto at this year’s Christmas market, organised by the town’s community council.
The group has joined with members of the Musselburgh Shed Project to work together on the festive structure, which will have pride of place at the event outside the Old Town Hall.
Santa usually visits the market and community councillors discussed the possibility of having a grotto for him this year.
Member Holly Kilday approached the shed project to see if those involved would be willing to build one and they were delighted to support the initiative.
Irene Tait, chairwoman of Musselburgh and Inveresk Community Council, said that the shed would be brought to High Street in flat pack and would be assembled in time for the arrival of Santa to the market on December 2.
She said: “It is great to get help from everyone at the shed project and we hope as many people as possible will turn out to enjoy the market.”
