Santa came to visit Stowmarket in spite of the Coronavirus restrictions that stopped him visiting house-to-house in Stowmarket and the villages as he has always done in the past. This was as much a disappointment to us as it was to the children who missed coming out to see him outside their front doors.
Instead he had to be content to greet everybody socially distanced from his sleigh parked in the the car park at Tesco’s and in the town center. He also visited the Community Centre on Hillside for the launch of the Food Bank.
