Santa Claus and his little helpers have arrived in Workington town centre for Christmas.
Santa’s grotto opened on Campbell-Savours Way on Saturday and will be in the town for the next two weekends in the lead-up to Christmas.
It is located in an empty unit opposite Home Bargains.
The Rotary Club of Workington is running the grotto and Debenhams has decorated it and donated Christmas books to give as presents.
Jeff Taylor in Workington donated a red carpet for the grotto.
The grotto will run from 11am to 4pm every Saturday and Sunday until Christmas.
Entry is be free but Rotary is suggesting a £3 donation for charities.
