Santa to visit Helmdon with the Round Table - 6pm

Thu, 03 Dec 2020 18:00

Santa's sleigh will be visiting Helmdon Thursday 3rd December 6PM.
Please read the info below on how to donate this year. Donations will be going towards Friends of Helmdon School. Many thanks for all your support.

Map: https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer… From Map Legend (on left) select 3rd Dec. to see route through Helmdon

Copy of Facebook post dated 12 Nov 2020:
Wow! December is coming round fast!
We have completed our planning and Santa has agreed to visit Brackley and the surrounding area, before his busy night! Our Covid safe procedures have been accepted and they will be in place to protect ourselves and the community.

We will not have collectors with Santa this year. We will have our tracker posted via this page each night he is out.

We must ask that you do not approach the sleigh and you MUST not gather in groups waiting for Santa. Where possible please remain on your own property.

If groups were to gather, we will be forced to terminate that route immediately and potentially cancel any remaining routes.

+ Hands + Space + Face + Donate +

Text BRACKLEY 3 to 70490 to donate £3
(change the 3 to any number to donate that amount)
Texts cost value of donation plus one standard rate message
All funds raised go to supporting our community

To check when Santa is due to be in your street.
1. Simply follow the link (you may need to sign into a google account)
2. Click on coloured shape covering your address. The date of Santa's expected visit will appear.
