Santa cruises into town
SANTA CLAUS IS coming to (Staveley) Town (basin) – and to Worksop, Chesterfield, Shireoaks and elsewhere along the Chesterfield Canal.
St Nick is going to be busy over the Festive Season, splitting his time between all four of the Chesterfield Canal Trust’s trip boats on weekends in December and the last few weekdays before Christmas. The Trust’s Santa Special trips will provide presents for children, mince pies and drinks for adults, and muchneeded funds for canal restoration.
The JohnVarley is running from Tapton Lock, Chesterfield; the HughHenshall from Worksop and from Shireoaks; the SethEllis from Retford; and the Madeline from Hollingwood Hub in Staveley. Trips cost £7 per person, and advance booking is essential: call 01629 for Chesterfield; 07925 851569 for Retford; 0114 360 0460 for Worksop and Shireoaks; and 01629 533020 for Staveley.
