With Christmas rapidly approaching, Asda in Falmouth has made sure that one important customer has no problem finding a parking spot.

The supermarket has reserved a special parking space for Father Christmas, in case he decides to pop in for some last minute shopping on his travels.

Colleagues at the shop wanted to make sure that the man in question had a special space for his sleigh and reindeer.

Steve Lehan, store manager at Asda in Falmouth said: “Christmas Eve is obviously the busiest time of year for Father Christmas, so we thought we would save him precious time by creating his very own ‘sleigh-parking’ space.”

The space is painted with the words "Reserved for Santa" and the ordinary customer parking space near the front of the store has been revamped, complete with sleigh and reindeer.

It also comes with ‘Santa’s little helpers’ so that the man in red can spot the space immediately on arrival at the store.

"The parking space is at the front of the store for his convenience and even has festive helpers to keep an eye on it to make sure that no-one else parks there," added Steve.

"It's created a lot of excitement amongst our younger customers who, like the rest of us, are looking forward to Father Christmas’ arrival on Christmas Eve.”
