A Spittal boy has a perfect view of Santa thanks to Councillor Hazel Bettison. She said: “Whilst putting up the Christmas lights, Jay asked if Santa could be put up near his house. I represent the youngsters, so how could I refuse?”
Councillor bettison added: “My thanks go to Martin Warner for going up the lamp posts with me, Neil Straughn with George Craig the builders for the loan of the machine and Bill Parkin of SWP for the cage.
“If it wasn’t for local business people supporting the Spittal Improvement Trust, then the lights would not go up.”
