CHRISTMAS is on its way and those living in Forth can enjoy a full afternoon of fun before the village’s Christmas lights are switched on later this afternoon.

Before the lights are officially turned on by Jim Paton at 4.30pm, Santa will be appearing in his Grotto inside Forth Church Hall from 12.30pm to 3.30pm.

However, entry to see him is by ticket only so get yours early to avoid disappointment.

There will be plenty of activities and games for the kids in the small church hall from 1pm to 3pm while tea, coffee and cakes will be available in the nearby Masonic Hall for all the adults.

A carol service will begin inside the church at 3.30pm and there will be plenty of Christmas tunes playing in the street to get you in the festive spirit.
