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.

The Lions and Santa are looking forward to seeing the children, parents and grandparents during this festive period. If you miss them during their evening rounds, they will be outside the Admiral Rodney on 21st December from 8.30am to 1pm.
