Santa is leaving his reindeer to rest a bit in readiness for their big trip around the world on Christmas Eve.

But he still needs to find out what all the boys and girls are hoping to unwrap so he’s taken to the waterway of north Derbyshire and north Nottinghamshire.

Santa cruises are being run along the Chesterfield Canal, setting off from Tapton Lock, Hollingwood Hub, the Lock Keeper pub at Worksop, the Hop Pole at Retford and Laura’s coffee shop at Shireoaks.

Each child will receive a present while adults will tuck into a mince pie and a drink, for the price of £6 each.

Canal trips run from Tapton Lock and Shireoaks every Saturday and Sunday until December 21 and from Hollingwood and Retford until December 24. The trips from Worksop have sold out.
