SUMMER may only just be over, but the search is already beginning at Webbs for right person to fill Santa’s shoes.

The Wychbold-based garden centre is getting ready for build up to the festive season with a search for Father Christmas.

The job description asks that potential Santas are warm and friendly, prepared for unexpected questions, and love Christmas and everything about it.

Executive chairman Ed Webb said, “White hair, a beard and a large belly are not essential but a hearty laugh and jolly personality will make all the difference. Children and families love the festive time at Webbs and meeting Father Christmas is the icing on the cake for most youngsters. It’s a magical time and our Father Christmas needs to match the figure of their dreams and make sure they have a memorable and enchanting time. A full outfit will of course be provided.”

Visitors will be able to come to Webbs and meet Santas from Saturday, November 15. Anyone thinking they might be suitable, should contact the garden centre on 01527 860011, write to or visit
