A HEREFORDSHIRE town is set to host Father Christmas for the first time in two years after Covid.

Ledbury Town Council said in 2020 and 2021 the council provided gifts to children from the Children's Centre, Ledbury Primary School, and disadvantaged families.

At last year's Christmas light switch on the council also gave out glow sticks and other such items, to all the children who attended.


This year the council has confirmed it will be having Father Christmas in the Jacobean Room of the Council Offices on Sunday November 27.

Ledbury Town Council's Events Working Party yesterday (October 14) agreed to recommend that the council continue to provide gifts as it has the last two years.

The town council will be writing to local businesses and asking for support with providing these presents to help with this.
