The routes of Santa’s sleigh rides around Ossett and Horbury have been unveiled.

Father Christmas will be making his way along the streets from Monday with a little help from the Rotary Club of Horbury and Ossett Phoenix.

On December 12 the man in red is off to Ossett when he will set off from Whitley Spring Road at 5.30pm and finish at around 7.40pm at Sowood Grange, off Horbury Road.

On Tuesday Santa will be visiting Horbury Bridge and part of Horbury. The reindeers will be in Lapwing View at 6pm before halting off Westfield Road, Horbury at about 7.45pm.

On Wednesday he will back in Horbury on the Manorfields estate from 5.45pm. His last stop is in Shelley Court just before 7pm. More routes are lined up for the week after, which will be in next week’s Express.

But Rotarian Bill Sutton said: “For the first time this year, after a special request, Santa will be at the Maypole in Gawthorpe on Wednesday, December 21 from 5.30pm to 6.15pm.”
