WIMBORNE was abuzz on Saturday as the 23rd Save the Children Christmas parade brought seasonal cheer and colour to the town. Crowds lined the streets to cheer on the floats, classic cars, steam engines, bands, dancers and walking groups, not to mention Father Christmas, the Snow Princess and her attendants.
