Mayor Warke, expressed his delight at welcoming local families back to the Guildhall: "One of the highlights for me over the entire Christmas period is my own Mayoral initiative where I am delighted to invite Mr and Mrs Claus and their busy Elves to join us in the Guildhall.

"Mrs Claus will be telling her North Pole Tales while Santa will also be taking time out from his hectic schedule at this time of the year to meet local children."
