The hunt is on to find men who can fill Santa’s big boots at a community centre’s festive grotto.
Highfield Community Centre needs jolly men to lend a hand at the magical den.
A weekend Santa has already been signed up but more volunteers are needed to help dish out presents and ‘ho ho ho’ during weekdays.
Centre chairman Pat Cox said: “We are struggling.
“We have got a lady that is standing in if needed – at a push – but we would rather not.”
Entry to the grotto, which opened on Saturday, costs £3 and includes a present. The funds raised go back into the Bellgate centre.
The grotto is open on weekdays 9am to 7pm, Saturday 9am to 4pm and Sunday 9am to 2pm.
To volunteer as Santa contact Pat on 07986 606572.
