A plea has been sent out to Father Christmas to drop-in at Clacton Pier
in the run-up to the big day.

Santa is needed to attend the attraction’s grotto each of the four
weekends in December to meet with youngsters at Winter Wonderland.

Bosses at the Pier are hoping that he will be able to find some time in
his busy schedule to take up the temporary position and he will have the chance
to earn some extra cash before Christmas.

As he will probably be keeping his clothes in tip top condition for his
rounds on Christmas Eve, a costume will be provided for the weekend shifts.

Nigel Brown, the Pier’s Communications Manager, said that Santa had not
been needed for more than five years as Winter Wonderland has not been staged

“We are very much hoping that Father Christmas can help us out this year
so that hundreds of kids will get the chance to meet him in the lead up to
December 25,” he added.

“Let’s face it, everyone can do with some extra spending power at that
time of the year, even Santa.

“If he can help us to make sure that the children are not disappointed
we would ask him to contact us at
as soon as possible.”
