Each year Santa’s Elves put special post boxes in Newton Aycliffe so that all of the boys and girls from Newton Aycliffe can post their letters to Santa.
When everything is quiet, and nobody is looking, the pixies empty the boxes and take the letters to Santa’s palace in Greenland. Santa replies to so many letters each year from the children of Aycliffe, and as he is very busy he has asked that you remember to put your full name and address on your letter.
We have been told that the post boxes will appear on Monday 3rd December at the following locations:
• Post Office/Youngs Newsagents Beveridge Way
• Johns Your Very Own Mini Market, Neville Parade
• Horndale Post Office, Silverdale Place
• Village Store, Woodham
• McColls at Simpasture
• Joy Marie Hairdressing at Aycliffe Village
The boxes will disappear on Monday 17th December, but e-mails and forms submitted from the Council’s website will be answered from today, right up to noon on 21st December. Santa has a special e-mail address Santa@great-aycliffe.gov.uk and the website address is http://www.great-aycliffe.gov.uk/events/santa-letters.html
