Meet Santa travelling in his sleigh this Christmas! The Lions will be helping Santa travel around Southwell and the surrounding villages starting on Monday 12th December in Farnsfield. There are some changes to the route this year and there will be 2½ nights in Farnsfield. Santa aims to start at around 6pm and finish at 9pm, but due to the many children he sees, all timings are approximate. Please bear with him if he is not quite on schedule. The Lions sincerely hope that Santa and his helpers will see as many local children and adults as possible.

Santa and the float will be outside the Admiral Rodney on Saturday 24th December from approximately 8.30am to 1pm.
