ONE Santa has ditched his sleigh for an alternative mode of transport this Christmas.

Hovabout Ltd is offering thrill seekers the chance to ride around Burnham beach on a hovercraft decorated as Santa’s sleigh and piloted by none other than Father Christmas.

Rides on the special service will be running daily until December 24, at a cost of £7 per ride.

Hovabout founder Paul Barnett said: “It’s offering a new activity for holiday makers, and with a Christmas theme.

“All the children who have been on it have said they’re going to tell all their friends at school about it, and the parents have had a great time going round on the hovercraft too.”

Mr Barnett also said that he is in discussions with North Somerset Council about starting a similar service in Weston Bay, describing progress as being ‘in the talking phase’.
