Santa is on his way

“Christmas starts for us when we have seen  the Harrogate Lions with Santa”,  this is one of the many warm comments that we have received as we tour the streets with our Sleigh and Santa.   It is a real pleasure to see so many happy  families  out  to welcome us as we journey around the Town

This year we are very grateful to Evans Halshaw Hyundai,  Harrogate,  for their kind  loan  of the tow car.
