Post your letters to Santa now…

Youngsters can now post their letters to Santa at a special post box inside Dukinfield Town Hall.

Every year hundreds of Dukinfield children post their letters to Santa through the special postal service provided by local ward councillors.

All letters posted receive a personal response from Father Christmas himself, although Santa and all of his little helpers stress that letter writers try to remember to include their name and address on the letter you send him.

Children can post their letters at the official Dukinfield Christmas lights switch-on, which takes place next Thursday, November 26, at the town hall on King Street at 6pm.

The post box will remain in place until December 4.

The official Christmas light switch-on event promises to be a sparkling event.

Father Christmas will be there of course, while the Yew Tree Singers will be in festive song.
