WITH the help of Erith Rotary Club, Father Christmas will be doing the rounds of the streets in the north of Bexley to collect cash for good causes.

For more than 50 years he has been touring the streets in his sleigh in the weeks leading up to Christmas, accompanied by carols and Rotary club members.

This year’s tour begins on Friday, starting at 6pm and finishing between 8pm and 8.30pm each evening.

Santa will also be outside the Co-op in Nuxley Road, Belvedere, on Saturday and outside Morrisons, off Erith High Street, between 10am and 2pm on December 13 and December 14.
