THOU­SANDS of res­i­dents vis­ited Plumpton Mar­ket­place on Sun­day to say hello to Santa Claus.

The man in red spent hours meet­ing chil­dren and pos­ing for pho­tos with them.

Santa swapped his sleigh for a ride on a Plumpton Ru­ral Fire Ser­vice truck.

“It was amaz­ing to see such a huge crowd,” mar­ket­ing man­ager Lisa Mourga said. “There’s a strong com­mu­nity spirit in the Plumpton-Mt Druitt area and we’re proud to be a part of that ... it’s al­ways a joy to see the ex­cite­ment on chil­dren’s faces when they see Santa ar­rive.”

Young­sters had their faces painted, watched Glen­den­ning’s Static Dance troupe and met Fire­man Sam.

The shop­ping cen­tre will hold a Break­fast With Santa on De­cem­ber 10, for chil­dren aged 4-10, with pro­ceeds go­ing to the chil­dren’s ward at Mt Druitt Hospi­tal. De­tails: visit plumpton mar­ket­
