Santa’s on his way

MORPETH’S Sanderson Arcade shopping centre will be shining on Saturday as Santa is coming along to switch on its Christmas lights.

He will be helped by nine-year-old Molly Bowles-Symons, who won the Arcade’s festive competition.

Entrants had to explain why they would like to help Santa and the Morpeth youngster wrote that she would like to help him because he might be able to get her a hamster for Christmas.

The day also features free children’s roundabout rides, stilt walkers and sweet giveaways.
