A WINCHESTER primary school is set for a boost when Father Christmas visits a local pub on December 22.

Santa will be at The Ship Inn on Wales Street from midday handing out presents to children.

Tickets cost £3.50 per child with £1.50 going to Winnall Primary School. That evening the pub will host a fund-raising party for the school.

Any child who wishes to send a letter in can send it addressed to Father Christmas, The Ship Inn, 3 Wales Street, Winchester, SO23 0ET or hand it into in directly.

Anyone wishing to visit Santa on December 22 should call Rob Plunton on 01962 809834 to book in advance to make sure Santa brings enough presents.
