The Mayor of Chesterfield joined Santa for a trip along the Chesterfield Canal.
It was the first Santa Special cruise of the season run by the Chesterfield Canal Trust on their tripboat John Varley.
They were joined by the Chairs of Derbyshire County Council and North East Derbyshire District Council, plus friends and family. After getting on board at Tapton Lock, there was a photo opportunity and then they set off down the canal. The children were all given a present by Santa, whilst the adults relaxed with mince pies and mulled wine.
