Santa’s sleigh ready to roll

THE appearance of Santa on his sleigh is always a dazzling highlight of the annual Hucknall Christmas Carnival and next Wednesday’s event will certainly be no exception.

But this will be only part of a hectic schedule which Hucknall Rotary Club have arranged for him and he will be visiting most areas of Hucknall, as well as a few venues outside the town, in the build-up to Christmas.

Children greatly look forward to meet Santa close to their own homes and it is also a chance for club members to collect donations for deserving charities.
