Santa takes leading role at festival

SANTA arrived in Fort William on Saturday morning for the Lochaber Rotary Club’s ninth annual Christmas festival.

Accompanied by his little helpers, Jack Sprague from Roy Bridge and Maria Sutherland from Upper Achintore, Santa and the team of Cairngorm reindeer left from Cameron Square and paraded along the town’s High Street, led by the Pipe Band and the Ben Nevis Allstars, and watched by hundreds of spectators.

The elves were picked from a Lochaber-wide poetry competition sponsored by The Oban Times which attracted more than 80 entries from primary school pupils. Local firm Ferguson Transport and Shipping funded the cost of the reindeer and chose the winning poems.
