The high winds and heavy rain of Stomr Desmond played havoc with Santa’s sleigh this weekend, forcing the postponement of his visit to Thompson Park.

Flooding in the park prompted organisers to rearrange a visit from Father Christmas from this weekend to next.

Nike Bailey, from the park friends group, said: “We have managed to reschedule and, weather permitting, Father Christmas will be visiting the park this coming weekend on Saturday and Sunda between 12 noon and 2pm. Rides will be £2 per person riding the train.”
