Tamworth Community Centre paid a visit by Santa Claus on a Harley-Davidson

TWAS a few weeks before Christmas and while there wasn’t a creature stirring, Santa Claus’ Harley-Davidson certainly was roaring across Tamworth.

Santa traded in his sleigh and reindeer for a bronze hog and was spotted spreading some early Christmas cheer chugging down Peel St and into the community centre.

North West Harley Owners Group (HOG) member Jackie Hudson said the event was all about giving back to the community.

“It’s just lovely to give back,” she said.

“Santa went up and down Peel St and doesn’t matter what age people are, they love seeing him and give him a wave.”

The HOG teamed up with the local Ulysses chapter on the weekend as part of a charity toy run assisting the Salvation Army’s Christmas appeal.
