SANTA will swap his sleigh for a vintage tractor when he drops off in Broughton Road, Skipton on the afternoon of Sunday, December 17.

Accompanied by his merry band of elves, Santa has been invited along by the Broughton Road Community Centre, Skipton West Ward councillors and residents.

The festive gathering promises a fun experience for all ages, with Santa parading along Broughton Road, bringing festive cheer. There will be craft making and festive treats at the community centre.

"We wanted to create an event that captures the spirit of the season and brings our community together," said Chris Rose, one of the trustees of the centre. "Santa's visit adds a charming touch, making it a truly festive occasion for everyone in Broughton Road."

It will take place on December 17 from 12:30pm to 3pm.
