THE 8th Alton Scout Group has teamed up with Alton Round Table to give Santa a new eco sleigh.

Insurance difficulties stopped him using his Land Rover-towed sleigh for his evening charity collections, but the Scouts turned a tricycle into a rickshaw as Santa could use that as a non-paying passenger. It has bright lights, a sound system and a 6ft Christmas tree.

Santa is in Victoria Road on December 4, Holybourne (5th), Ridgeway (6th), Borovere/Mount Pleasant (7th), Lincoln Green/Treloars (8th), Whitedown Lane/Butts (9th), Southview Rise (10th), Greenfields Avenue/Hop Field Place (11th), Princess Drive (12th), Crowley Drive (13th), Linnets Way (14th), Wooteys/Manor Estate (15th), Gilbert White Way/Oakland Heights (16th) and Anstey Lane (17th).
