Specsavers Swanley are well and truly in the Christmas spirit already this year.

The store is getting ready to sponsor Santa’s Grotto when the festive lights are switched on on Saturday 25 November. The Swanley team will also be sponsoring a snow machine, to add a little extra magic for local children.

First Christmas in Swanley

The store, in Swanley Shopping Centre, opened earlier this year – so is enjoying its first Christmas in town.

Faheem Ayub, store director in Swanley, said: ‘We are delighted to be doing our bit to help Santa out, as we know it is a really busy time of year for him.’

Naughty or nice

‘We know Swanley is really busy when the Christmas lights are switched on, and we are expecting about 300 children to pop in to see Santa and pick up a present. We hope they have all been nice, rather than naughty, this year.

‘Some of our team will be out and about enjoying the fun, but we will be open as normal – so if you fancy getting yourself a new pair of glasses for party season, why not drop in and see us.’
