Meet Father Christmas in Daventry.

Father Christmas will be touching down at Daventry Country Park to meet children in the run up to December 25.

He will be flying in from the North Pole on Friday, December 22 greeting youngsters at the park’s vistiors’ centre, off Northern Way, from 10am - 12.30pm.

Santa’s Stop has been arranged with the help of Daventry District Council, the Rotary Club of Danetre and the Friends of Daventry Country Park.

Meeting Father Christmas is free and each child who sees him will receive a free gift.

Families visiting Santa’s Stop are reminded to make sure they wrap up in warm clothes and that youngsters are accompanied by an adult.

Due to the increasing popularity of the event in recent years and to limit queue times, parents are asked to book their children into time slots in advance by calling (01327) 871100.
