The spirit of Christmas is alive and well in this Leicestershire village.

Residents of Kegworth have been delighted by the appearance of wrapped Christmas presents, left by a secret Santa, dotted randomly throughout the village.

And they have taken to a local Facebook page to share pictures of the presents they have found and messages of gratitude for their mystery gifter.

The labels on the gifts are all signed off from ‘Kegworth’s Secret Santa’.

Josh Connor who wrote in a post that he had not been well recently, and that times had been ‘difficult’, so when he came across a small gift placed in Whatton Road he was over the moon.

He said he thinks the secret Santa might be a group of people rather than just one, but he can’t know for sure. One thing he does know though, is that whoever it is is proving that there is good in the world.

Lorrae Sunley found a gift on Derby Road, on a bench near the local chippy.

‘Thank you to the secret Santa me and my mum and son found this just near the chippy on the bench,’ she wrote after sharing a picture of the gift on Facebook. ‘Made a little boy very happy. What a lovely thing you are doing who ever you are.’

Ellie Fox, 22, found her present – which was a wrapped chocolate reindeer – on top of a wall while on her break at work.

‘I was on my lunch break at work and found it on the wall at first I thought someone had dropped a gift and then I read the tag and it was a random act of kindness for someone to find.

‘I went back to work and told all my colleagues about it and everyone agreed it was a lovely thing for someone to do, warmed our hearts.’

No one’s sure if the generous individual will continue leaving presents out all the way up until Christmas day, but the locals certainly hope so.
