Santa goes slimline for carnival

SANTA might get a new waistline for Christmas - after setting up grotto in a Wombwell slimming shop!

There was a small degree of panic, when there were no free High Street units for the big bearded man to keep his date at the town’s Christmas Carnival.

But Jayne Hornsby of the Cambridge Weight Plan Centre has solved the hefty problem....

She stepped forward to offer her centrally placed premises, and on November 26, Carnival day, that’s where Santa will be.

Andy Cole of the Wombwell High Street Committee said: “We’re very grateful to Jayne for stepping in and saving the day”.

The fun will run from 10am to 4pm with stalls, rides and music from the Rockingham Band.
