Santa Tour PosterIn association with Dartford Living and Dartford Lions Club, Dartford Council bring Santa to ten communities this Christmas.

Local children are being asked to look out for a vintage Fire Engine carrying a very special VIP as he visits a number of communities around Dartford between now and Christmas.

Dartford Borough Council has joined forces with Dartford Lions Club to arrange visits by Santa Claus to ten locations across the town and Santa has promised a free Christmas gift for every child he meets.

Council Leader Jeremy Kite says “We’re delighted that Santa has found time to take part in ‘Santa on Tour 2018’ and we hope he will bring a lot of joy and happiness everywhere he goes. Dartford Lions has a long tradition of visiting local streets with their Christmas Sleigh but this year ten of those visits will be extra special.”
