Santa Sleigh on its way to town

Evesham Editorial 25th Nov, 2022   0

THE COUNTDOWN to Christmas has well and truly begun with the return of the Vale of Evesham Round Table’s Santa Sleigh.

The big man himself will be doing his rounds in the town and surrounding villages to check that all the boys and girls of Evesham have been good this year and are ready for Christmas.

The sleigh’s success is made possible in part by the generous support given by Listers Volkswagen Evesham who provide a vehicle every year to help Santa on his way.

The sleigh has been visiting the streets of Evesham for more than 40 years, and Santa is ably assisted by a team of volunteer elves from local groups, clubs and charities co-ordinated by the Vale of Evesham Round Table.

“The Vale of Evesham Round Table is once again proud to help Santa bring joy to the people of Evesham. With the contributions from members of the community we have been able to support many worthwhile causes that have had a hugely positive impact on the local community,” said a Round Table spokesman.

Father Christmas and his elves aim to visit as many families as possible around the town with his ‘sleigh ride’ starting at 6.30pm on weeknights and 4.30pm at weekends.

After starting his journey around the Vale in Hampton on Sunday (November 27). Father Christmas and his elves will wind their way around the town before finishing with a visit to Cheltenham Road on December 16

The Vale of Evesham Round Table always welcomes new members to help make events, such as the Santa sleigh happen.

They are a club for men aged 18 to 45 that host regular social nights and as well as supporting local community projects.

There is also a sister organisation, Evesham Ladies Circle, who run a calendar of social events and fund-raising.
