December 2011 newsletter

Dear London Mums

It’s really almost Christmas although we have been bombarded with it since October…. Every year Christmas preparations start a month earlier.

Our Christmas party was a huge success, sold out and with over 250 mums and kids, Disney Princesses, Froogle entertainer and Santa in his Grotto bringing lots of pressies for everyone. You can check and get the pictures from our official photographers at MEMORYGATE’s dedicated page The password is Eddie.
