Search for Santa’s helper

SANTA Claus is coming to town again this year aboard a vintage fire engine.

And he is looking for a special child to ride up front with him when he arrives at the Co-op department store on Saturday December 10.

The lucky youngster will also receive an early Christmas present from the Market Place store.

If you know a child, aged 12 or under, who deserves to be Santa’s little helper, please explain why in no more than 200 words and send it to Santa’s Special Helper Competition, Ilkeston Advertiser, 8 Heanor Road, Ilkeston, DE7 8ER.

Entries should be received no later than Friday December 2.

The winner should have parental consent to ride on their own with Santa on the fire engine and be willing to participate in publicity.

There are 12 places available to have breakfast with Santa between December 10 and 24. To book and for more details call 0115 932 7777.
