Families are to be treated with an enjoyable day out at the annual Christmas Fair in Aden Country Park in Mintlaw this weekend.

If you are looking for stocking fillers or that special gift for that hard to buy for person then why not come along to the Christmas Fair on Sunday, December 6 from 11am to 3pm.

Not only will there be a fantastic range of local crafters and food producers, there will also be a Santa’s grotto, face painting, and traditional Christmas music from the Deveron Brass Band, along with a selection of delicious winter warming food and hot drinks in the recently refurbished Café at Aden.

Other activities on offer this year include an opportunity to help our feathered friends over the winter months by building a bird feeder with the Buchan Countryside Ranger.

The Aden Craft & Gift Shop will also be open from 10.30am to 3.30pm, seven days a week, offering a range of Christmas gifts including children’s toys, books, cards, bags, scarfs, and jewellery, all at fair prices.

The Café at Aden will also offer a Christmas pop-up shop again this year offering a stylish selection of stocking fillers, decorations and an array of small gifts.

Santa will be in his grotto (upstairs in the Café at Aden) between 12pm and 2pm, tickets are available from the Aden Craft & Gift Shop for £5.

So why not bring the children and enjoy a fun, family friendly day in Aden Country Park, with a once in a lifetime chance to meet Santa, and an opportunity to both get Christmas presents sorted and chance to tire the kids out at the children’s play area, what’s not to love!

The Aden Christmas Fair is being organised by the Friends of Aden Country Park with any profits earned going towards improving Aden Country Park and the organisation of future events or activities in Aden.

Let’s try and keep Christmas local this year and join us in a fun filled family day out at the Aden Christmas Fair, supporting local crafts and food producers as well as helping to support Aden Country Park, the jewel in the Buchan crown.
