GMRT said in a statement: "Since we have released our dates and routes for Santa, we have had an amazing response from excited families who are eager to see the big man over the next month. We understand that we play an important part of Christmas for many people and make every effort to get around as much of Glossopdale as we can. 

"We've also had an overwhelming number of requests for Santa to visit roads or streets that are not on our advertised routes. Believe us when we say that we really would like to visit everyone in Glossopdale, but there are a few things that stop us from doing that. We have to abide by certain times and agreed routes as determined by our collecting licence; all of our collectors are volunteers and we have to fit collections around them and finally, we don’t want to exhaust Rudolph before the big day... that wouldn't do at all!

"Having said that, we would like to inform the residents of Gamesley that Santa will be making a change to his advertised schedule on Thursday 28 November at Gamesley Xmas Market. After the market, at around 7.30pm, Santa will make his way around Melandra Castle Road on his way home.

"Merry Christmas everyone and thank you very much for your support."
