Father Christmas will arrive in town today.

Christmas must really be just round the corner because Santa kicks off his traditional and much-loved tour of Market Harborough tonight (Wednesday).

Father Christmas Santa is being backed as usual by his top team of helpers from the 3rd Market Harborough Scouts as he launches his three-week street by street circuit of the town.

And he will also be putting in a guest appearance at the Christmas Fayre and late-night shopping extravaganza in the town centre on Friday (December 3).

The Farndon Road-based scout group have been supported by a string of local companies as they have worked hard for weeks to make sure the tour is as Covid-safe as it can be.

You are being implored to chip in to bucket collections generously to back the scouts and regional Air Ambulance service after the Santa spectacular had to be cancelled last year.

So make a note of when Santa and his special helpers will be visiting your street so your children can lap up all the festive fun.
