Its nearly that time of the year again - this Sunday 24th Santa Claus will be teaming up to visit all the families and children in the valley. He will be departing Bonogin Valley Rural Fire Brigade's station from 1:30pm to visit as many people as he can. He just had to pass on some tips to make sure the day is a success:
Parents and children please be careful around the fire trucks when they arrive and stay off the road.
Parents with small children will be required to be present in order for Santa to hand out lollies (North Pole rules).
If there are a big group of children, if it is possible to group them together so that Santa can visit as many people as he can.
And finally, don't forget to wave, scream and shout out to Santa - he loves to see everyones big happy smiles.
Merry Christmas everybody.
