Have you met Santa in his sleigh yet?

He's been out and about, and his helper elves at Great Dunmow and District Round Table are collecting new unwrapped toys for The Salvation Army's Christmas Present Appeal, and long-life food for our local Foodbanks.

Suggested items for the Foodbank collection include long-life milk, instant mash, packet rice, tinned fish, and toiletries such as toothpaste and deodorant.

Suggested items for the Christmas Present Appeal vary by age range but all items need to be unwrapped and new.

To take part, gather your donations into a bag or box and leave it outside your home at 6pm on the day that Santa's Sleigh is visiting.

Great Dunmow Round Table - Santa's helper elves - will collect and deliver your donation to the right place.

So far the sleigh has been in the High Stile, St Edmunds Lane and Newton Green areas.

Tonight (Thursday December 2) it's at Flitch Green.
