Santa & his helpers are getting ready to tour the town & surrounding villages.
The first night out is Friday the 1st December.
Many thanks to all the volunteers and members of both Lions & Rotary (the elves if you prefer), who put lots of work in behind the scenes and go out driving, marshalling and collecting too.
Letters to Santa can still be posted on the float too, but remember to include your name & address!
Detailed routes are posted below.
