CHRISTMAS has come early for the residents at Drusillas.

Father Christmas has moved into the Christmas Cottage at the zoo near Polegate.

He can be visited daily from today until Wednesday, December 23 and for an additional charge of £10, children can meet Santa and receive a gift.

The park will also be lighting up its Winter Wonderland illuminations and there will be festive music and a dazzling display between 3.30pm and 4.30pm every day until Monday, January 4.

There will also be the opportunity to meet two of Santa's reindeer Angel and Twinkle on selected dates.
