Santa arrives in the City

THE countdown to Christmas is now officially underway, following last night's arrival of Santa to the City Centre.

The visit by Saint Nick came complete with a sleigh and reindeer and a crowd of hundreds of children - some of whom were bearing gifts.

Tomorrow afternoon the festive follies continue in City Square, where a party hosted by CHY-FM will attempt to set a new world record for the greatest number of dancing Santas.
