THE chair­man of Chiltern Dis­trict Coun­cil is back­ing Small Busi­ness Satur­day, which is set to be held on the same day as the Amer­sham Christ­mas Festival.

Mimi Harker and Amer­sham Ac­tion Group have thrown their weight be­hind this year’s event, which is one of the big­gest in the town’s cal­en­der and will be held on Satur­day December 3.

Mrs Harker is also on the hunt for seven San­tas to run the grotto and is look­ing for vol­un­teers to fill the role.

She said: “The per­sons to ful­fil this role must be full fig­ured, of rea­son­able height and stature, with a jolly face and prefer­ably a long white beard and thick, curly, snowy hair.

“If no beard is present, one will be pro­vided and must be worn at all times when in this role, along­side the cus­tom­ary red suit.

“In the ab­sence of a suit­able head of hair, one will be pro­vided which must be worn at all times in the role.

“If more than seven ap­pli­ca­tions are re­ceived, the de­ci­sion will be made at au­di­tions, the date to be con­firmed, and will be judged on the de­liv­ery of the cus­tom­ary ‘ho ho ho’ and jolly laugh in a suit­able Santa style.”

All ap­pli­ca­tions must be re­ceived no later than 5pm on Novem­ber 23.

She is also look­ing for spon­sors for the Santa suits and for ap­pli­ca­tions for Santa’s lit­tle helpers. Con­tact mi mi. am er sham@ for de­tails.
