For the ninth year running Santa Claus wishes to come to the streets of High Halstow on Christmas Eve. In time honoured fashion Fairy George and the Parish Elves will be assisting Santa in delivering presents to the children and adults (and animals!) of our wonderful village
The charge as last year will be £2.00 per present with Santa choosing to split the donations between:
1 Help For Heroes The charity set up to help wounded servicemen and women
2 Cerebral Palsy Care, The Bradbury Centre, View Road, Cliffe Woods The organisation that was setup many years ago to provide both special need services and educational support to people of all ages who suffer from a wide range of disabilities
Santa’s helpers will also accept additional donations for the charities on the night should you have some spare change or give to Bob in the shop. Santa will happily deliver the presents if you do the following:
1 You buy your gift and wrap it clearly with the name of the recipient and the address it is to be delivered to (High Halstow only please). If your child is attending the Church Service and would like the present at the Service please just put the address as The Church and Santa will call.
2 Pop the present along to Bob in the shop by no later than Sunday 18th December
3 Please note for insurance purposes the value of the present should not exceed £10.00
4 Please do not make the presents too large as Santa is busy this time of year and would prefer smaller parcels
Last year we made over 300 deliveries which started at 4.00 pm. Sorry we cannot guarantee a time for any delivery as the time taken is around 5 hours. If you have presents for young children don’t forget there is a guaranteed delivery time at the Church at 6.00pm if this helps.
