Story

Father Christmas has once again asked the members of the Frome Lions & Rotary clubs to assist him in when visiting the residents of Frome and surrounding villages this Christmas.

The position relating to the Covid-19 regulations this year requires some alternative arrangements having to be made. Having been approved by the authorities, the Santa Float will be running from December 4th on 17 days before the big day on the 25th December. The dates and routes are listed below.

The most significant change will be that no house to house collections will take place and helpers will not be knocking on individual doors, or collecting cash at the roadside.

Unfortunately, handwritten letters to Father Christmas cannot be accepted this year, and for this reason the post box on the float will not be in use. It will still be possible to send them by email to santa@fromelions.org.uk and they will be forwarded to Father Christmas. Responses to letters will be sent and rest assured, boys and girls, that Father Christmas will, as usual, be reading all your letters in time for the delivery of presents.

All of this is of course subject to review following any adjustments to instructions which may be issued by the government or local authorities relating to Covid19.

A Lions and Rotary spokesperson said: We are absolutely delighted to be able to run the float around Frome and surrounding villages this year. Following a huge amount of special preparation, and great support from the Local Council and Police, we will be able to bring some seasonal joy and excitement to brighten up everyone in the community as Christmas approaches.
