A seasonal celebration of Christmas has been travelling across the borough to bring festive cheer.

The Great Yarmouth Lions Club Santa sleigh is on tour and has proved a hit already with children.

A Lions club spokesman said: “Despite the adverse cold, icy weather the Great Yarmouth Lions Club have completed two weeks of their very busy three week schedule, bringing a little Christmas cheer to children and adults alike.

“Thanks go to Santa, his sleigh team, volunteer helpers and of course the public for their support and goodwill message received through the Great Yarmouth Lions Facebook page.”

You can find daily updates on Facebook for the remainder of the planned Santa sleigh visits.

Formed in 1953, the Great Yarmouth Club was the first in the eastern region of the British Isles.
