You may have seen Santa making his first appearance this year at the Late Night Shopping event switching on the Christmas Lights. The big man himself is now out and about with his cheerful helpers and the Southwell & District Lions float and will be touring Southwell and the surrounding areas until 23rd December. The routes have been changed this year due to the temporary road diversions and the extra houses especially in Farnsfield.
