With just 120 days until Christmas and with Santa busy in his workshop creating toys to deliver to our children on Christmas Eve, Hillmount needs lookalikes to manage their grottos at Belfast and Bangor for the festive season.

Alan Mercer, Hillmount, said: “Since Santa himself can’t come from the north pole to help out in our grottos, we need friends of Santa to look after them for us throughout the festive season.

“Our grotto in Belfast is one of the largest garden centre grottos in Northern Ireland and visiting it has become a real tradition throughout generations of families who return every year with great grandparents bringing new babies and everyone in between.

“In Bangor, we’ve developed our grotto over the past four years and this year we’ll be adding a third grotto to our family when our new store opens in Ards.  Our Ards grotto is going to be quite different from Belfast and Bangor and all will be revealed soon.”

If you know someone who could join the Hillmount elves and act as Santa, to convey the magic of Christmas to visitors at some of the busiest grottos in the country, from late November to Christmas Eve in Hillmount Belfast or Bangor, send a CV and photo to: info@hillmount.co.uk no later than 31 August.  Scrooges need not apply!

Family owned Hillmount has been serving the local community with a team of 80 local staff for almost eighty years.  The garden centre family’s flagship store is at Gilnahirk with a second store in Bangor and a third garden centre is being added to the family in Ards in autumn.
