Harrogate Lions bring Father Christmas to Harrogate College

Working in partnership with The Harrogate Lions Club, Joinery and Art and Design students at Harrogate College have been extremely busy over the past few months, giving the Santa’s Sleigh a new lease of Christmas spirit.

The team of students from the Joinery department stripped down the initial sleigh and gave it the curves that any Santa’s Sleigh needs. They even created a Post Box for children to pop their Christmas lists in!

The Art and Design students then whisked it away and gave it a new lick of bright red paint, perfect for the Christmas season. There are Christmas trees made out of delicately painted snowflakes and a flurry of snow, beautifully hand painted across the sleigh.

All the students and staff have enjoyed working with the Harrogate Lions on such a community project and also loved Santa’s visit to Harrogate College! We all look forward to seeing him out and about, delivering presents all over Harrogate.

Big thanks to Martin Wood and Dave Coombs from Harrogate College for their help and support.
