It was Santa hats, tinsel and warm drinks for Islanders who turned out to usher in the crimbo spirit.
The Minster-On-Sea Rotary Club enjoyed their very first Santa run through Sheerness High Street, held to celebrate the beginning of the festive season.
Meanwhile, outside Sheppey Amusement Arcade, it was lanterns and lights for the Big Fish Art’s annual Lantern Parade as it set off just after 4pm on Saturday, 5th December.
Beavers, school children and youngsters supported the event with inspired ideas of how best to make their creations their own.
The events were organised as part of Swale Council’s Small Business Saturday initiative to encourage residents to help support independent retailers.
