Children and adults alike greeted Father Christmas as he flew in on his sleigh for the special occasion.

Jason Shepherd, chairman of Doddington Sports and Carnival Committee, said: “Santa and his helpers had a great time helping spread the festive cheer around the village.

“The three nights were a great success with the amount of donations received exceeding last year’s total,” he added.

Santa said: “I love how Doddington really embraces the spirit of Christmas each night. For that, I would like to thank everyone that came out to give me a wave, mince pie or have a photograph.”
