Alton's Santa Sleigh is lit up and ready, with reindeer champing at the bit, to bring Santa and his elves to the streets of Alton.

A spectacle to herald the coming of Christmas, Santa’s sparkling eco-friendly sleigh will be visiting as many areas as it can up to and including Sunday, December 10.

A part of the town’s seasonal festivities, Alton Lions Club is delighted this year to lead the community in continuing the Santa Sleigh tradition.

President Moira Baker said: “This is very much a community event and we would welcome support from anyone who would like to come on board and join in the fun.

“All money raised will go to local community projects and activities.”
