CHRISTMAS came a little earlier than usual for visitors to one Suffolk garden centre.

Santa Claus arrived at Notcutts in Woodbridge on Sunday – much to the delight of the centre’s many young visitors.

He arrived in his traditional present- laden sleigh before setting up camp in his winter wonderland- themed grotto.

He will be at the centre until Christmas Eve and is hoping to see as many children as possible.
