THE first of December has come and gone and the countdown to Christmas is on!
Santa and all his helpers are busy making final plans for his trip on Christmas Eve, and they're ready to read and reply to the letters of children around the world.
Santa has some special helpers right here in Chinchilla who can make sure your letter will get to him safe and sound.
The Chinchilla Family Support Centre has a letter box, bright and colourful, waiting for your letters.
Community connect worker Louise Judge said all the children of Chinchilla need to do is write their letter, and put it in Santa's letterbox.
"Santa never lets children down,” she said.
"Santa's so good like that.”
Your parent or guardian just needs to put your name and their phone number on the back of the letter, so Santa's helpers can post it back safely.
Santa has also enlisted the help of the Chinchilla Lions Club.
Lion Lindsay Marsden said members were happy to help ensure Santa received letters.
He said all children needed to do was write their letters and send the to Santa Claus, c/- Lions Club of Chinchilla, PO Box 193, Chinchilla, Qld, 4413, and Lions club members will ensure letters reach Santa safely.
