Santa Claus is coming to Huntingdonshire

Santa and his helpers will be spreading Christmas cheer and no doubt checking up on who’s been naughty and nice over the coming weeks.
Santa has once again teamed up with St Ives Rotary Club to bring his float to the town and surrounding villages.
Accompanied by an army of helpers singing Christmas carols, he will be sweeping through the area collecting donations for good causes supported by the club.
Last year, £7,860 was raised and more than £65,000 has been collected in the last 10 years.
Rotarian Ken Millard said: “People often say how much they always looked forward to seeing our Santa float when they were children, and now they still look forward to it, but with their own children.
“For many, it signals the start of Christmas, and it is a hugely important part of our Rotary Club’s fundraising activities.
