The announcement has been warmly welcomed by families who described it as 'fantastic' and 'brilliant' on social media.

Little ones love to look out of their windows and see the magical sleigh ride past their home.

A team of enthusiastic volunteers will make sure everything is done in a Covid safe way with social distancing.

Full details of dates and routes have not yet been finalised.

Families will be able to follow Santa on a special tracker, which has proved very popular in recent years, on Middlewich Round Table's Facebook page.
