Christmas is coming, time to recruit Santa again!

The big day may still be more than three months away but a public park in Liverpool is recruiting a Santa for its grotto for Christmas 2018.

The Liverpool Echo reports the role is based in Calderstones Park, where charity The Reader is developing the site’s Grade II listed mansion house into an International Centre for Reading and Wellbeing.

The successful recruit, who will be paid £10 an hour, will work at the centre, which will transform its gallery space into a “magical” winter wonderland grotto this Christmas.
