Biddulph Rotarians help Santa get ready

With Christmas fast approaching, members of the Rotary Club of Biddulph are hurrying to help Santa get his Sleigh into first class condition for a busy Christmas this year.

Last year the sleigh, which has been in use every Christmas for several years, suffered some damage, including a severe injury to one of the reindeer’s antlers. The reindeer’s antlers have recovered and the sleigh has now been brought back from the North Pole to a secret location near Biddulph and a team of Rotarians and ladies from Inner Wheel are helping Santa do a final tidy-up on it so that it will be in pristine condition and ready for Christmas.

The sleigh will bring Santa to Biddulph Town Hall on Saturday, 29th November for the switch-on of the Lights at 5.30 pm, and he will be in his specially constructed temporary grotto afterwards to talk to the Children who would like to tell him what they would like for Christmas.

Starting Monday, 1st December, Santa and his sleigh will be touring Biddulph and the surrounding area each weekday night between 6.30 pm and 8.30 pm, until Friday, 19th December.

Santa will also be in Biddulph town centre on the Saturday 7th December, and will be outside Sainsbury’s in Biddulph on Saturday 20th December through Tuesday 23rd December.

In addition Santa will also be making an appearance at the Switch-on of Biddulph Moor Lights on Saturday 6th December.
