News about the Santa Sleigh!
We are excited to announce that Santa will be riding around the streets of Wombourne in his sleigh on Sunday 20th, Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd December 2020.
Sadly he will be too busy seeing everyone to stop and say hello and as we all need to remain at a safe distance we ask that you please don’t approach the sleigh or form groups in your street – instead, watch and wave through the windows or doors in the safety and warmth of your own home or your front drive/garden.
Long has been the tradition of a visit from Santa and this year, whilst it may be slightly different to normal, we are delighted Santa will once again visit our lovely village, the sleigh has been organised for the past 35 years by the rotary club of Sedgley and Wombourne with some assistance from 3rd Wombourne Scout Group in more recent years. This year Wombourne Community Assistance Group and 3rd Wombourne scout group are delighted to assist Santa as some younger elves are required to keep Santa safe – please go to https://wombournesantasleigh.weebly.com to find out which night Santa will be near you and, on the night, to follow his progress via the live sleigh tracker.
We will be unable to collect donations door to door so we ask that you kindly make any donations online at :https://justgiving.com/fundraising/wombourne-santa-sleigh-ride
Like in previous years every penny collected will go to local charities and good causes supported by the rotary club of Sedgley and Wombourne, Wombourne Community Assistance Group and 3rd Wombourne Scout Group.
The routes are subject to change according to the weather and the space made available by people choosing to park considerately where roads are narrower – please think about parking further from your home for the short time the sleigh is due to pass in your area so we can visit as many people as possible.
