Those Santas keen to get fit for a busy delivery schedule can go on to Galley Hill then turn back to West Parade toilets and return to the terrace. A distance of 5km.

Lion President Clare Kersley said: “All the family are welcome, with prizes for the best dressed dog, pushchair and wheelchair.

You can run, saunter, jog or walk. It is mobility scooter friendly so we would love to see those who took part in “Wheel and Walk” come along and take part.”

Lions will be at the Friday Market on November 23 and 30 to hand out the free suits to that have registered. You can also register on these days with payment being cash only.
