Santa is out and about touring Southwell and the surrounding villages, but with the changing spread of the coronavirus and its impact on our communities, these arrangements could still change at any time.

We won't be able to knock on doors, so please come out to meet us on the pavement, say hello and have a chat. We'll all be keeping our distance, wearing face protection and hope that we can still bring some much needed cheer without encouraging crowds or street parties.

Even with only a group of six, we are covering most of the roads that we normally visit, but without shared transport to ferry collectors etc. we have had to miss out a few streets. We'll make up for this in 2021.

Our timings are approximate, as we can only estimate how many Santa stops we'll have en route. Please listen out for the music.

We'll have contactless card readers as well as the normal buckets and a donation link on our website. www.southwell-lions.org/christmas-float-2020

or at www.justgiving.com/campaign/santafloat2020

If we need to make any last minute changes these will be on our facebook page and website. We look forward to seeing the children, parents and grandparents during this two week period.

Santa and the float will be in the Co-op car park on Saturday 12th December and outside the Rodney on Saturday 19th December from approximately 8.30am to 1.00pm
