SANTA Claus made a special visit to meet school children in Verwood and Three Legged Cross.

Verwood Rotary Club decided to bring Santa to the children.

The Rotary Club teamed up with local community radio station Forest FM and worked to convert their outside broadcast van into a mobile Santa’s grotto to bring some festive cheer to the children.

The small team visited first schools in Verwood and Three legged Cross.

The children trooped out class by class to post their letters in the Christmas postbox and chat with Santa.

Some of the classes sang carols for their special visitor and just about all of them promised to be good this year.
