His reindeers may not have been able to make it, but Santa made sure Christmas joy was spread throughout a Norfolk town.
Fakenham’s rotary club held a parade for St.Nicholas on December 17, along with carol singers across the market town, with member and Santa veteran, Nick Bird once again donning the red suit and beard.
The sleigh stopped at locations across the town for children to wave and for carolers to sing to onlookers.
The group held the parade to raise spirits and keep the magic of Christmas.
“It will keep the Christmas spirit alive in Fakenham, we want to do as much as we can to make it as happy as possible,” Mr Bird said.
