21 December 2019 - Santa Sleigh Ride raises money for the Churchmead Playground Restoration Fund


On Friday 20th December, just as it was getting dark, Santa and his elves "flew" around Lavant, saying hello to as many children as possible. Lots of children came out to see him and Santa's elves tried to ensure that every child got a small gift and/or some reindeer food for the garden. Parents very kindly donated to the playground fund and a grand total of £75.52p was collected. Santa says a huge thank you to anyone who contributed. It was lovely to see so many children, and Santa says he will see you again next year! Merry Christmas to everyone and best wishes for a Happy New Year!
