SANTA’S elves are descending on Keighley.

They will be at Specsavers – in the Airedale Shopping Centre – on Saturday, December 4, between 10am and 3pm.

The elves will be spreading festive cheer in-store and nearby, giving out chocolate and candy canes to children.

And the following Saturday, they will be doing the same at Specsavers’ store in Market Square, Shipley – also between 10am and 3pm.

Raj Gill, store director at both branches, said: “We’re really grateful to Father Christmas for sending some of his elves.

“I chatted to Saint Nick and he is super-busy getting everything ready for Christmas, but he has promised to send down some of his most cheerful elves to Keighley and Shipley. It will be a fun and magical time.”
