Father Christmas and his helpers have just announced the schedule for this year’s Santa Float.
Santa made his first appearance of the year at the Buckingham town centre lighting-up ceremony on Saturday, when he handed out glow sticks in return for donations, helped by members of Buckingham Table.
The Santa Float begins its rounds in Buckingham and the surrounding villages on Friday, thanks to Buckingham Table and Buckingham Rotary, with all proceeds going to local charities and good causes.
