Martha Has Fun at Christmas Parties
Martha and her family were lucky enough to be invited to two Christmas parties by two local charities. Martha really enjoyed the Peapods traditional Christmas party with games and crafts, a lovely buffet lunch and a visit from Father Christmas bringing presents for all of the children. Martha also had a lot of fun at the Sebastian's Action Trust Harry Potter themed Christmas party. Martha had some lovely food, took part in a potions lesson to make slime and enjoyed meeting Dumbledore and his friends who were giving presents to all of the children.
