Recent refurbishment of Santa’s Sleigh and Routes for 2020

Unfortunately in 2020 the touring around Shrewsbury of the Rotary Christmas Sleigh will have to be reduced due to Covid – 19. It is not possible to maintain social distancing while touring which means it is unfair on Santa or the children. No one wants to spend Christmas in hospital with Covid – 19!

It is hoped that Santa will be able to attend various supermarkets round the town to allow our little people a glimpse of Christmas spirit. I am sure you will appreciate that during these difficult times access to Santa and the sleigh has to be restricted. But as usual there will be festive music and maybe the odd lollipop or two.

Santa Sleigh Routes for 2020.

You can make a donation via out Dedications Page.

Unfortunately due to Covid – 19 Santa is unable to visit the supermarkets as in previous years.

Please remember not to get too close to the Sleigh…..n we don’t want Santa to be in hospital over Christmas
