Two Lions Clubs are happy to announce that Santa has agreed to visit their towns again in December.

Both Clevedon and Portishead Lions will be greeted by Father Christmas throughout the month.

It will not be possible for him to travel along every road but he will be stopping at certain points along the route for everyone to come and speak to him.

All times are approximate but we will do our best to make sure that he is at each designated point as near to the time stated as possible. Each stop will be for around 15 minutes so please come along to say hello to Santa and his helpers.

The routes are taking place in Clevedon as follows.

After much planning, Santa will be coming to Portishead from December 1.

Portishead Lions will again be at the top of the town collecting with the Santa Float for local charities and good causes.

The group will have Santa helpers collecting cash and will also be able to take contactless payments.

There will also be chances to meet Santa on December 11 in the Aldi car park, at the Lions' stall at the Victorian evening on December 12 and at Sainsbury's car park on December 18.

A Lions spokesman said: "We will do our best to stick to this schedule but please note the routes and times could change at very short notice depending on the weather and the latest Covid-19 restrictions.

"We would ask you not to contact us to request additional streets as we have a limited capacity to be able to cover the streets already listed."

For full route information visit the group's website daily at 5pm at www.portisheadlions.club or at www.facebook.com/portisheadlionsclubuk
