Santa Claus is coming to town

2016-12-08 06:01

AS the festive season draws close, the highly anticipated One Way Christmas ruck is making a comeback this year.

In previous years, Father Christmas has chosen varied modes of transport to visit the South Coast, from a Coca-Cola truck, a helicopter and even a fire engine.

To keep up with the fun and the festive spirit, One Way Youth Outreach decided to bring Father Christmas in an aeroplane from Margate Airport on Tuesday, 20 December. Children can then meet him and enjoy a free cupcake. Please note it will be on a first-come-first served basis.

Don’t miss out on the hype surrounding this event which will create a stir among holidaymakers and the community.

Moms and dads are asked to bring the children to enjoy the lively atmosphere, which will include Christmas music, the MC, lighting and a safely co-ordinated and marshalled programme. Come early to avoid disappointment as every attempt will be made for each child to receive a gift.

Father Christmas be visiting the following venues on:

Monday, 19 December at 3pm


Breama sports grounds

Tuesday, 20 December at 6pm

Margate Airport

Wednesday, 21 December at 7pm

Ramsgate Beach

Thursday, 22 December at 7pm
