EASTBOURNE Arndale Centre and the Eastbourne Herald are offering two lucky families the chance to win an unforgettable Christmas trip to the magical LaplandUK.

The award-winning magical Christmas experience gives youngsters all the fun of Father Christmas’ arctic homeland at the beautiful Bewl Water Estate, near Tunbridge Wells in Kent.

The Arndale Centre is giving two families the chance to win a family ticket for a visit on the weekend of December 10 and 11 when the elves will be busy making toys for Father Christmas as he prepares for Christmas Eve.

There will be lots to do while you’re in this snowy magic land. There’s decorating gingerbread in Mother Christmas’ kitchen and ‘ice-skating’ to try. You will meet husky dogs, see reindeer, and send a postcard from Father Christmas’ working North Pole Post Office, and meet the mystical Sami people. A personalised visit to Father Christmas himself in his snowy forest home completes this unique day.

Eastbourne Arndale Centre manager Bill Plumridge said, “Christmas is such a special time for families and we are thrilled to link up with the Eastbourne Herald to offer this fantastic prize to two families. It will be a really magical start to Christmas for the lucky winners.”

The closing date for entries is Monday November 28 2011 so make sure you don’t miss out.

Please do note that the times for the visits, Saturday December 10 at 2.30pm, and Sunday December 11, at 2.30pm, cannot be changed. One family will be chosen for each day and the prize does not include transfer to and from LaplandUK.
