Search for replacement Santa in Swansea Valley
THE search is on for a volunteer to help save Christmas for a Swansea Valley village.
Members of Clydach Community council have been told that a problem has arisen over the planning of their annual Father Christmas parade as the man himself is due to work nights in his 'other job'.
A councillor who usually dons the red suit in the popular parade through the streets of the village told his colleagues at this week's meeting: "I have a bombshell. I have had an email and have to work that night."
This year's parade is set to take place on Wednesday, December 11.
Both the town clerk, Stewart McCulloch, and councillor Gordon Walker were suggested as replacements but so far no decision has been made.
