Father Christmas’s movements had been rather more restricted for the previous two festive seasons due to Covid pandemic restrictions.

But at last things appear be returning to normal.

Monica Meehan, president of Wigan Rotary, said: “We are delighted we have been able to organise for Santa on his float to be in a street near you during December this year.

"We have decided not to knock on doors so we hope residents will come out when they hear the music to say ‘hello.’

"For confirmation of dates and times when Santa is likely to be down your way or at Tesco’s you can check on the club’s website:

"After last year’s success with our ‘Zoom with Santa’ children will again be able book a call to see him in his grotto and have time to chat to him and tell him what they want for Christmas.

"This is a fully personalised experience and will see Santa having one-to-one chats with each child from his Lapland grotto and recreate the magic of this festive tradition as best as possible.

"The club’s priority continues to be to provide support for local community and voluntary groups but we do provide some assistance for organisations involved in humanitarian work overseas.

"We intend to continue to make donations to local groups as in the last year through our Community Day, Dragons’ Den and the Christmas collections to help with the amazing work being undertaken locally to help people cope during the difficult times ahead.

"Last year Wigan Rotary Club were able to help over 45 different charities.”
