Any children who want to take part are invited to fill out the template letter with their name and age, along with a promise that they will leave out a mince pie and a drink, with a carrot for Rudolph.

Winners will be able to spend their vouchers in their home town centre of either WGC or Hatfield, and also win a film screening at Campus West for their ‘bubble’ of up to six people, subject to government restrictions.

Letter templates can be downloaded, and then the children can pen their letter to Santa and post it to him in one of the special post boxes in WGC and Hatfield town centres.

The post box in Hatfield Town Centre is near the Christmas tree in White Lion Square, and the Welwyn Garden City post box is on the second floor of The Howard Centre.
