Christmas Competition – Spot the Stoke Lodge Elf!
From Monday 4th December we are expecting a visit from the Stoke Lodge Elf. If you spot them at Stoke Lodge you could win an Adult Learning Gift Voucher.
To enter you need to spot our elf and fill in an entry form (they will be available in the foyer) – letting us know where you saw the elf and what they were up to!
Once the Elf has hopped on back to the North Pole to help Father Christmas prepare for the big day – we will select a winner from all the correct entries.
You have to be in it to win it!
