The Parish Council's Christmas Float was a great success, travelling down almost every street in the community and brought festive cheer to what has been a miserable year.

Parish Councillors were joined by Liam Webb from Maple Tree Care, who provided his time and trailer, and local resident Danni Wardle who was in disguise as the 'Elf on a shelf'.

Santa, Mickey, Minnie and Santa's helper the 'Naughty Elf' was provided by professional actors hired by the Parish Council. More »

Commenting afterwards Cllr Alan Chewings, Chair of the Parish Council said:

"The Santa Float was a great success and the biggest pleasure of all, was seeing the beaming smiles on children's faces - and of course many, of the adults.

The biggest shout out goes to local residents, who came out in their hundreds to celebrate the festive spirit and to wish Santa and his friends a Merry Christmas.

On behalf of Sawley Parish Council, I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year. » Less
