Sanat set to arrive on the New Horizons narrowboat

Santa Claus is coming to town on Friday evening 1st December, swapping his sleigh ride for a 'Santa cruise' on New Horizons narrow boat - a must-see for the little ones in the family. 

Look out for Santa, his elf and helpers arriving by boat on a magical illuminated journey at Marple Social and Forces Club on Limekiln Lane after gliding along the canal from Goyt Mill. The bridge at the Ring O' Bells on Church Lane will be the first sighting of him. You can follow the narrowboat from the bridge to the club but torches are recommended as some of the paths are quite dark. It truly is a magical experience and brings the festive season to life with fun and excitement.

If you would like to take your children or grandchildren to meet Santa, you are asked to be at the club from 6.30pm where hot drinks and food will be available as well as drinks from the bar.  Hazel Grove Brass Band and carol singers will help to create a lovely Yuletide atmosphere. Sweets, lucky dips and glow sticks are among the special treats lined up for the children. 

Santa will arrive at 7pm so make sure you are there in good time to give him a rousing cheer and a warm welcome to Marple.
