Here comes Santa... and another.. and another...
There will be a literal army of Santas flooding through Boston on Sunday, December 16.
They will all be wearing the famous red suit, but not all will be sporting the flowing white beard and hair.
They will be willing participants in Boston's Santa Run, Jog or Walk (you don't have to be a runner). The event organised by Boston Community Runners will coincide with one of the festive markets running in the Market Place and Pescod Square.
Entrants will pay £10 for their Santa suit for the day and will receive a medal and a goody bag at the finish of the course in the Market Place. The start will be in Central Park.
Santa's Little Helpers (otherwise known as marshals) are needed, and if you want to help out, get in touch with Boston Community Runners via their website www.bostoncommunityrunners.co.uk Santa's Little Helpers get their own costume and a finishers' goody bag.
The event is being sponsored by Forceshift Skip Hire, Jakeman's Confectionary, Calders and Grandidge, Bruce Mather Estate Agents, South Lincs Foodservice and Total Sports and Supplements.
Don't forget that craft and gift fairs will also take place in Boston Market Place on Thursdays, December 6, 13 and 20 when there will be also be late-night shopping, free festive entertainment and free parking in all borough council-run car parked on all three days from 4.30pm to 8.30pm.
