Where and when Santa will be out and about in Ashton

TAMESIDE Rotary’s Santa will be taking to his sleigh and touring the streets of Ashton-under-Lyne in the run-up to Christmas.

As we all know, the man himself has got a busy schedule to fulfil in time for the big day.

He will be visiting the various communities of Ashton between Thursday, December 7, and Wednesday, December 20, as well as stopping by at popular shopping locations – so you might bump into him when you’re at the shops!

The mobile routes will take place between 6.30pm and 9pm and Santa will be accompanied by his helpers so the Rotary Club can raise funds to continue its valued work.
