Almond Valley

He wishes everyone the compliments of the season, and has some early Christmas presents to share with the children who visit him. Elsewhere, Almond Valley is brightly decorated for Christmas, there are seasonal crafts in the museum to try your hand at, while the animals of Mill Farm are enjoying their own special celebrations.
