Alloa First - Naughty Elves Christmas Trail

Please Help!

Our lovely town has been invaded by a gang of Naughty Elves, they really are a dreadful bunch and not behaving themselves.

They are eating cake and stealing flowers, painting their feet and making towers.

Sipping cocktails and drinking shots, dressing up and smashing pots.

They’re swinging from the Christmas socks and eating all the Christmas chocs

We need to catch them on the double, to stop them from causing even more trouble.

Can you help us catch them all and put a stop to this Festive brawl?

When this special job is done that’s not the end of the Elf Trail fun! Return your completed Elf Trail sheet to be in with a chance of winning an Elf Trail Treat!

Grown ups! Post your completed Elf Trail sheets into Santa’s Christmas Post Box located at the Performance Space beside the Christmas Tree by Monday 21st of December and you will be entered into a prize draw to win a spectacular hamper of family goodies with two additional runner up prizes. Good luck!
