As we count down the days to Christmas, everybody is rushing around in a Christmas frenzy; but that’s no reason to miss out on welcoming the ‘Big Man’ to your neighbourhood.
Year upon year, children and adults alike delight in meeting the man himself – giving the children a perfect opportunity to make those last minute present requests.
This year Father Christmas, sitting onboard the Rotary Club of Hyde’s Christmas Sleigh will be setting off on their tour of the various districts in Hyde between December 11th and 23rd.
Father Christmas we will be visiting various locations supermarkets and superstores in the run up to the festive celebrations ably assisted by the Rotary Club members and volunteers.
In exchange for a small donation, Santa’s elves will be handing out Christmas cards and sweets to help support their local projects throughout the coming year, it also gives the children the opportunity to come out and have their a picture taken with Father Christmas.
Hyde Rotary Club President Alan Oldham said, “I would like to encourage residents and children to come out on to the streets this festive period and get involved in the Christmas spirit and donate to our collection to help support the many local projects we will be supporting next year.”
