With Christmas now only seven weeks away, Santa is preparing to take his sleigh on his annual tour of a Suffolk town where he will be greeting residents.

And Father Christmas has been given some presents of his own for his trip around the streets of Felixstowe, including a new trailer, which was used for the first time last year and some improvements to reindeer Rudolph, whose legs and frame have been strengthened to ensure he does not wobble.

The Rotary Club of Felixstowe and the Felixstowe branch of charity Save the Children arrange the sleigh rides, which will be starting on Monday, November 27 in the Langer Road and Sea Road area.

Funds from this year's trips around Felixstowe and the surrounding villages will go to the two organisations.
