The Friends of Barnsley Road Playing Field have organised the event which will take place at the field off Barnsley Road in Scawsby on Sunday.

Scawsby is playing host to a Christmas fayre and Santa Dash this weekend.

Scawsby Community Centre will be the venue for the Christmas fayre between 11am and 4pm with Father Christmas dropping in between 11am and 3pm.

The Santa Dash will take place on the playing field from 10am.

The events have been organised by a small group of volunteers from the Scawsby community who are fund raising to create better facilities at the park.

Group spokesman Vicki Scotting, chair of the committee said: 'Barnsley Road Playing Field is long overdue an upgrade and working with the community by fund raising events, we would like very much to see something that is sustainable for years and generations to come.
