Hear what happened when Santa phoned some local children

Father Christmas Santa

Published by The Stray FM News Team at 3:21pm 24th December 2018.

On Christmas Eve Santa popped into the Stray FM radio studio to make some last minute calls to some local boys and girls. 

Despite it being his busiest day of the year, the main man himself has been calling children from all over Harrogate, Craven, and Wharfedale spreading some festive cheer and magic.

'Santa Call' is undoubtedly one of Stray FM's most heart-warming features, and returned again this year with Milk and Honey in Harrogate.

Santa and Stray FM Presenter Beth Parsons called children in Harrogate, Ripon, Skipton, Ilkley, Knaresborough, Boroughbridge and further afield... and here is the result.
