FATHER Christmas will once again be visiting Hereford and the surrounding areas. 

Hereford Lions Club has been bringing joy to children for the past five decades, with its Santa sleigh. 

This year's evening tour will start at Belmont Avenue at 4.45pm tonight (Saturday, December 9) when the big man will be visiting people in the Hunderton and Redhill areas of the city. 


Santa has a special booking tomorrow (Sunday, December 10) but people in the Moreton-on-Lugg, Marden, Sutton St Nicholas, College Estate and Roman Road areas can see him on Monday (December 11). 

Trips to Holme Lacy, Fownhope and Bartestree will then take place on Tuesday (December 12) before Santa pays a visit to Hereford High Town. Shoppers will be able to see him from 10.30am to 5.30pm before the sleigh is taken to Clehonger.

Other visits include Tupsley/St James, Hinton/Lower Bullingham/Saxon Gate, Newton Farm/Abbotsfield and Stretton Sugwas/Credenhill, with Bobblestock, Westfields and Kings Acre finishing off the route on Monday, December 18.
