Father Christmas visits Handcross

Father Christmas wearing his wellington boots arrived in Handcross Parish Hall once again to distribute presents to the children of Handcross Primary School.
The date has been estimated, but perhaps someone can recognise a child, or even the mother and toddler at the back.
The Large Version shows a close up.
Select Open Document for another view of Father Christmas. The boy in blue cannot wait until he arrives back at his place before opening his present. Conveniently the presents were transported in black bin bags.
The chap with the white beard bears an uncanny resemblance to George Hood of Navidale in the Horsham Road.
Happy Christmas!
