Children met a number of surprise visitors when they called in at the Andrew Jackson Cottage to post their letter to Santa.

Mrs Claus was at the Boneybefore attraction recently to read them stories, while Santa and his reindeer were outside.

The also made crafts and plant their own Christmas trees during the fun programme hosted by Mid and East Antrim Borough Council.

The cottage is the ancestral home of the seventh President of the United States.
