Rufford Country Park launches search for Santa


The summer holidays may only just over but a county park’s search for Santa has already begun

The county council’s country parks team is looking to recruit a Father Christmas to join its team to help entertain children at its Rufford Country Park grotto, which forms part of the festive programme at Rufford and Sherwood Forest country parks later this year.

Lynn Negus, retail manager at Rufford Abbey Country Park, said: “There is clearly only one Father Christmas but as we all know he cannot be in every place at once so we have a vacancy for a jolly, jovial person to help out for a few hours.

“In previous years there has been no shortage of interest from people who want to lend a hand and this year we are asking if the local media can put the word out to help us. It is all about us helping to make Christmas as magical as we can for children from Nottinghamshire and beyond.”

Anyone interested in the position will need to be available for around six weekends in the run-up to Christmas. Interviews will take place in early September.

It is anticipated that this year the Christmas Grottos at both Rufford and Sherwood will open during weekends from November 21 until December 20 and will also open from Monday, December 21 to Wednesday, December 23, from 11am to 4pm.

For more details about this jolly position contact Lynn Negus on lynn.negus@nottscc.gov.uk or 01623 821343. More details about the festive programme at Rufford and Sherwood country parks will be announced in the next few weeks.
