When and where to catch Santa as he does the rounds across Solihull

Sarah Mason 6th Dec, 2018

FATHER Christmas will be out touring Solihull throughout December in a bid to help raise funds for charity.

He will make his way around the streets and will be outside supermarkets with his band of little helpers to help boost coffers of local charities.

Students and staff at Solihull College and University Centre handed over the keys to Solihull Round Table after they had restored a festive mobile home.

The model house has been used for 40 years in the seasonal celebrations.

The house was painted, sanded, restored and had lights and electric added to restore it to its former Christmas glory.

With a chimney adorning the roof awaiting Santa himself, the house, kitted out with fairy lights and a sound system, will be on the road for 15 displays, which started on Monday.
