SANTA Claus really is having his busiest time of the year as he sees communities all over the area in the run-up to Christmas.
You would think Lapland was such a hive of activity, he would need all hands on deck.
But in conjunction with Rotary Club branches, he has found time in his bust schedule to get out and about.
With Tameside Rotary, he will be at Ashton’s Hartshead Estate on Tuesday, December 14 before finishing off with the lower part of the area the day after.
From there, he will be touring much of what is left of Ashton on Thursday, December 16 and after a few days off, he will finish off the town on December 20 and 21.
He will also be at ASDA Ashton and Tesco Droylsden on Friday, December 17 before visiting ashton town centre and Sainsbury’s Ashton on the following days.
Father Christmas will also be spreading festive cheer around Hyde after linking up with Hyde Rotary.
On Saturday, December 11 he will be at the town’s B&M Bargains store, before touring Newton, Gee Cross and Hattersley.
He then returns to Newton before spending December 18 and 19 at Tesco Hattersley.
