A CANAL boat had an unusual captain this weekend - Santa Claus.
Father Christmas met dignitaries including Mayor of Chesterfield Cllr Peter Barr at Tapton Lock to promote Chesterfield Canal Trust’s Santa Special cruises.
Trips, costing £6 with a gift for every child and festive refreshments for adults, run from the lock every Saturday and Sunday from November 26 to December 18.

For the first time the trust is also running trips from Nona’s Coffee Shop at Hollingwood Hub, near Staveley, on the last four days before Christmas. To book call in at Nona’s or ring 01246 477569.
