Youngsters and elderly residents in a west Norfolk village were treated to an early Christmas present on Saturday thanks to a special visit from Santa.
The event, which saw Santa travel through Sporle near Swaffham on Saturday, December 12 handing out gifts was the idea of Charlotte Axtell, who wanted to do something to raise spirits after a difficult year.
Various businesses donated or supported the event, including employees from Tesco, Dan Orange Electrical, The Little Hair Shop and Steve Pitcher who made and donated wood for Santa's sleigh.
Santa, accompanied by elves, was driven through the town posing for photographs and delivering gifts to people's doorsteps.
Mrs Axtell, who works in the village post office, said: "I thought It would be really nice to do something.
