The savvy 68-year-old has a busier festive season than most, as he spends it entertaining local children as Father Christmas.
From hosting parties to giving out gifts on a Santa train ride, there are no lengths Dave won’t go to as he makes sure everyone has a merry old time.
I wanted to reward him for being an excellent Sun Saver and for all his good work in the community, so I paid a surprise visit to Dave and his wife Liz at their home in Stafford.
I took him a brand new Santa suit and lots of goodies for the kids — and while I was there, I asked him for his top tips for curbing Christmas costs . . .
