Despite the situation unfolding behind The Kings Ransom loads of kids and adults packed out a normally peaceful Sale Waterside.

Santa came to town and in some style bringing in some Christmas cheer after being delayed due to the pandemic.

All of the barges were well lit up and playing music however they did not stop as we expected at Waterside and continued on to Sale Cruising Club further down the Bridgewater Canal.

On what was a freezing cold evening, the spirit of Christmas shone brighter and for every kid and Adult alike this was indeed still a special occasion.
