Santa will be visting Ilkeston between December 18 and 21.

He will be visiting the following areas between 6pm and 8.30pm: December 18, departing from the Mallard and visiting Shipley View and Cotmanhay areas; December 19, departing from The Cat & Fiddle and visiting Kirk Hallam; December 20, departing from Park Road and visiting Larklands and Hallam Fields areas; December 21, departing from The Punch Bowl and visiting West Hallam.

All proceeds raised will go to The League of Friends of Ilkeston Community Hospital.
