Santa’s Little Helpers set to enjoy festive mini break in Neston

Assets and Events Manager for Neston Town Council, Claire Evans said “We’re delighted that the Elves have picked Neston to enjoy some quality down time and we can’t argue with their choice. We’ve such a fantastic blend of retail outlets, coffee shops and restaurants in addition to some wonderful Christmas events. However, it’s not all play for the Elves, some have agreed that visitors new and old to the town can come and see them in their Neston holiday homes in Neston’s first ever Elf Trail.
