Festive Ideas 2016

We have put some ideas together for some festive activities and money saving opportunities. Christmas can be an expensive time so no better time to save a few pounds wherever you can. Any questions? If you can think of anything else?  Please email HPLS on hpls@live.co.uk

Gingerbread and Festive Family Fun at Netley
Saturday 17th December 2016
1800 – 2200 hours
 - Free to attend but tickets required
Come along to Netley for an evening of Gingerbread House decorating and festivities. Meet Father Christmas and his most loyal Elf. Bop to DJ Dave.  Whilst free to attend this is a ticketed event – each ticket will include a gingerbread house kit for the family to decorate. Father Christmas will have a small treat for each child attending however please note that pre-purchased presents are not being provided. Festive fancy dress is an option for adults and children – dust off those shimmering frocks and stripey socks.  Lush catering will be on site offering hot seasonal sandwiches, mince pies & Christmas Pudding Ice Cream at very reasonable prices. Netley Bar will be open for hot and cold drinks. For more information or to reserve your tickets please email: baps.functions@hampshire.pnn.police.uk    See you there!

Important - Numbers are limited, but tickets are required and are only available to HPLS members and their immediate families. Please do not just turn up on the day as admission will be strictly for those with allocated places. This is due to maximum numbers permitted for an indoor event at Victoria House, according to Elf and Safety!
