More to Christmas Feilding's Salvation Army Family store is telling the story of the true meaning of Christmas. For four days next week, storytellers will be in the store twice a day to tell or read stories to children. Store manager Anne Englebretsen said the idea came from discussions among the volunteers to let children know that there is more to Christmas than the commercial promotion. We have set a nativity scene up in the window and will put down cushions for the children to sit around the story- teller's chair,'' Mrs Englebretsen said. We have a roster of storytellers, who are there at 11am and 2pm from Monday 19 to Thursday 21. It is up to them to bring stories and sit with the children. It will depend on the response of the children how long the sessions will take. It is the first year for us, so we don't know if the children will sit for 10 minutes or 20 minutes.'' Santa cave delights By BOBBIE NICHOLLS Santa gifts: Contrary to the usual concept of expecting gifts from Santa, the children of Manchester Street School's room F bring gifts with them when they visit the Santa cave in Feilding. Teacher Margot Mackie said the children are always excited when they visit the cave, and bring small gifts which are donated to Manchester House Social Services for distribution. Photos: BOBBIE NICHOLLS Thanks Santa: 22-month-old Carley Bateman from Feilding Playcentre was a little overwhelmed by her encounter with Santa in his Santa cave at Feilding Little Theatre. The Rotary Club of Feilding annual Christmas Cave hosted more than 700 visitors on its first day of opening. Santa was in resi- dence before and after the Christmas parade on Sunday, but took a break to join in the parade and be welcomed to town by the mayor. This week the cave has been open to the public from 7pm but during the day is only open by appointment. On Monday and Tuesday, schools and preschools visited the cave during the day. There is a model train, twinkling lights and a giant Christmas tree. Over the weekend and next week the cave is open 10am till noon and 1pm till 4pm. The last day will be Christmas Eve when the cave closes at 2pm.
