Tradition has not been forgotten in Stanway this year with the route of Colchester’s Greatest Santa officially announced.
Stuart Bull, who has been appearing as Father Christmas (Santa) since December 2000, is due to take to the streets of Stanway on Saturday December 9th between 5pm and 9pm.
Mr Bull who raises money for charity said “I have a very friendly and fun-loving personality which helps make me a great Santa.
“My energy and drive encourages all, whether it is a small family visit, a float or a large event like a school. Which means everyone, young and old has a great time.
“The reason I do this and only for charity is quite simple, I strongly believe that the meaning of Christmas is Good Will To All.”
This year a total of 21 routes have been announced in and around Colchester including Greenstead, Mile-End, St. Johns, New town and Stanway.
On the night, there will be a few opportunities to catch a photo with Santa with the route starting at the green on Lucy Lane North and ending at the green near Sandmartin Crescent.
