Santa Claus really is coming to town in and around Bradford on Avon from this weekend – with a little help from his friends at the town’s Lions Club.

The faithful band of Lions start their annual Santa tour on Friday night in the Woolley Street and New Road area before moving on to Springfield.

On Saturday night they will be out and about in Holt, moving back to Bradford on Monday to tour Northleigh, Leigh Park and Berryfields.

Tuesday is the turn of Bath Road, Priory Close, Huntingdon Rise and Ashley Road, while on Wednesday they head out to visit Broughton Gifford, spending Thursday night in and around Westwood.

Santa and his float will be playing carols, sending festive good wishes to all and collecting in aid of Lions charities between 6.15-8.30pm.

They are keen to recruit new members: call 01225 866551 or email penny797
