THERE will be jingle bells around the Holme Valley next week as Santa pays an early visit.
The man in the red cloak will be touring around the valley on his festive sleigh collecting goodies for the old as well as the young.
Holmfirth Round Table is helping him on his journey on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday even- ings from around 6.30pm.
He will be out in Upperthong, Wool- dale, Hade Edge, Thongsbridge and other areas collecting tinned goods for festive hampers.
Chairman Martyn Leach explained: " Everything we collect will be given to the Women's Royal Voluntary Service, which then helps us make up hampers which are given to deserving elderly people."
Anyone who has tins to donate which they would like to be collected, should contact Mr Leach on 01484 455233.
