THE hunt is on for Santa and his elves to work in Dobbies Haresfield store this Christmas.

From regaling stories from the North Pole to asking children about their Christmas list, Santa and his team will be bringing the magic of Christmas to life for customers of all ages.

Due to the Covid pandemic, the grotto experience will be different this year, as Santa and the elves will be adhering to social distancing guidelines.

A spokesperson for Dobbies said: “We will be closely following Government guidelines to ensure all events from our Christmas programme are safe and enjoyable for all.”

Applicants are invited for the roles of Santa and elves with a full training programme provided for those who are successful.
