A NEWLY refurbished Santa float has been met with good feedback, organisers have said.

Mold's Santa float has in the past been run by the town's Round Table, as well as the Rotary Club.

In recent years it has been featured in a stationary position on the high street.

But following a refurbishment, it is now making its way around the streets for the first time in several years - to the delight of residents - after Mold Town Council decided to take it on.

A spokesman for the town council said: "It has not been round the streets of Mold for quite some time.

"The town council agreed to take the float over from the Rotary Club and it has been refurbished by deputy mayor Cllr Tim Maunders.

"It has been out four times so far in all weathers and the response has been amazing from all ages.

"The volunteers have had such good feedback.

"All of the sweets for the float have been generously donated by Iceland and KMA Tool Hire in Mold has donated the generator to power the festive lights and music."

As well as seeing Santa, children can give him their letters.

The float began its rounds on December 1 and it will be out around different parts of Mold most nights from today up to Wednesday, December 19.

All donations received will go towards the mayor of Mold's appeal 'save a life, make a difference.'

For the full programme and locations, visit Mold Town Council's website (www.moldtowncouncil.org.uk) or search for the town council on Facebook.

On Saturday, between 10am and 2pm The Counselling Hub in Mold will host Santa's Grotto.

Admission will cost £3 per child or two for £5. Each child will receive a gift from Santa and all proceeds will go to The Counselling Hub.

Then on Saturday, December 22, in the Daniel Owen Square, Santa will be joined by Mold Town Concert Band and festive music including a performance by Cor y Pentan.
