Routes revealed for Santa’s tour of Shoreham

Christmas has come early for Shoreham and Southwick Rotary Club, with a successful craft fair and preparations for the annual tour with Father Christmas and his sleigh.

All the profits from the fair at the Shoreham Centre on Saturday will go towards a slit lamp for the opthalmology department at Southlands Hospital in Shoreham.
