FATHER Christmas's elves will be leaving special post boxes in Newton Aycliffe again this year.

All children who post their letter to Father Christmas in the boxes will receive a reply from Greenland.

Parents are asked to check that the child's name and address are legible before posting.

The boxes will be at Stevens Newsagents in Beveridge Way, Neville Parade post office, Aycliffe Village post office, Redhouse post office and Woodham post office from December 1.
