Driffield Cricket and Recreation Club have completed improvement works at their home on Kings Mill Road, Driffield, after an award of £28,803.98 from East Riding of Yorkshire Council as part of Commuted Sums from local housing developments. The club also spent £4,000 of their own funds towards the total cost of the £32,803.98 project.

Father Christmas will be out in Driffield on his sleigh to see everyone this year. The Driffield Rotary Club are no longer running the sleigh but the Driffield Showground team will be running the sleigh going forward and raising money for local causes as usual. 

The sleigh has had a make over this year with a shiney coat of paint, a new sound system and lights. 

On the route this year Great Driffield Radio will be joining Father Christmas and broadcasting the LIVE Santa Tracker show. You will be able to tune into 107.2FM to find out where Father Christmas is and find out how far he is away from your street. 

The funds generated will support the four ex Driffield Rotary Bursaries and projects in the town.
