Father Christmas, along with his little helpers from the Rotary Club of Brit Valley, will be coming the towns surrounding Bridport throughout the month of December.

He will also appear in Bridport itself on Saturday mornings during December.

"Look for Santa’s helpers wearing hi-vis jackets with the rotary Logo!
