WITH the Christmas countdown well and truly on there are a couple of opportunities to pick up bargains today.
Santa Claus and his elves will be appearing at Dobbies Garden Centre at Sandyholm.
Santa will be travelling from the North Pole and will be arriving at the garden centre around 11am.
Meanwhile up in Tarbrax the village’s annual Christmas Fair will take place from noon until 4pm in the village hall.
The fair, which will also raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust and Canine Partners, will see friends Mandy Walker and Wendy Middleton have their heads shaved for charity; the headshave takes place at 3pm.
Meanwhile, the Biggar Ramblers will be braving the weather then they go on their eight mile walk which leaves from the Corn Exchange.
