Eastbourne children can receive a personalised message from Santa this Christmas as part of a free North Pole delivery service.

Children can deliver their letters to Santa at the town’s visitor centre and will receive a reply by Christmas Eve.

The North Pole post box is located in the DQ Terrace Bar and Café in the Welcome Building, between the Congress Theatre and Winter Garden.

The postal service is being coordinated by Visit Eastbourne and is completely free.

Letters need to be posted by Friday, December 17 at the latest and parents are encouraged to include their home address.

Eastbourne Borough Council’s lead member for tourism and culture Councillor Margaret Bannister said, “It really is the most wonderful time of the year and we know how important it is that Santa receives letters to him with requests for gifts and wishes.

“That is why we have installed a special North Pole letter box in the DQ Terrace Bar and Café inside the Welcome Building.

The DQ Terrace Bar and Café is open daily from 9am–4pm in the Welcome Building, Compton Street.
