Wisbech Lions will be helping to make Christmas even more merrier once again this year when the club joins Santa on his new sleigh for his annual tour around the town.

Santa greeted more than 500 children during the town’s Christmas Lights switch-on on Sunday, and now youngsters will get another chance to meet the Big Man with his tour of the streets and local supermarkets.

The first festive outing takes place this Friday at Morrisons supermarket in Elm High Road.

Children can come and say hello to Santa, who will be giving out free sweets to good boys and girls, between 8am and 4pm.
