Santa Claus is coming to town - and that town is Great Yarmouth as the Lions Club gear up for another year of spreading joy around the borough over the festive season.

Santa Claus is coming to town - and that town is Great Yarmouth as the Lions Club gear up for another year of spreading joy around the borough over the festive season.

And they even got in a bit of early practice at the Christmas Fayre last weekend.

Santa has been looking at his diary, he's checked it twice, and it has been confirmed where and when he will take his traditional fundraising tour this year. Accompanied by Lions members shaking their buckets for pennies and pounds, Mr Claus is hoping people will dig deep and give generously to the pot which gives back to the community all year round.

The sight of Santa lit up sleigh on their street has been the signal of Christmas for many children in the town, and this year will be no different when Santa makes his way to the following spots:

November 29 - Great Yarmouth Market Place - noon to 4.00pm

December 2 - Bradwell South - 6.30pm to 9pm
