SANTA made a stop-off in Newmachar on Thursday night, as he finished his rounds of visiting the surrounding towns and villages.

Beginning in Oldmeldrum for the switch on of the town’s Christmas lights, Santa and his team of elves from Oldmeldrum Rotary Club visited Rothienorman, Tarves, Methlick, and Daviot, before returning to Oldmeldrum and finishing up in Newmachar.

“We’d like to thank everyone for their warm welcome and their generosity”, said Martin Belshaw, who organised Santa’s visits. “The donations will help us to fund good causes at home and abroad in the year ahead.”
