Santa and his running elves (courtesy of North Bristol Running Group) will be hitting the streets of Bradley Stoke on 20th and 21st December.
They will be collecting for an hour in the town square at the Willow Brook Centre from 6.15pm on 20th December before heading out on a circuit that is expected to include Webbs Wood Road, Marjoram Place, Juniper Way and (if time allows) The Bluebells.
On 21st December, Santa will depart Bradley Stoke Surgery at 6.15pm and visit Brook Way, Wheatfield Drive, Dewfalls Drive and Savages Wood Road before pausing in the town square between 7.15pm and 8pm. Then he will be off again, visiting Three Brooks Lane, Hawkins Crescent, Kemperleye Way before returning to the surgery.
Santa’s elves will be collecting for charities that are being supported by two of the group’s members who have entries in the London Marathon, and to help send Emma Barnes to the Transplant Games.
The Bradley Stoke Lions’ elves are proud to announce that Santa has a new sleigh and two new reindeer for his 2016 tour! Trial runs are rumoured to have been carried out in late November, so if you were very lucky, you might have already caught a glimpse of the new sleigh passing down your street!
Everything will be ready for Christmas and Santa will be at the Willow Brook Centre on 10th December looking forward to seeing everybody. He will be touring round Bradley Stoke on a number of evenings in December. For information as to his route, keep an eye on the Bradley Stoke Lions Club page on Facebook and listen to Bradley Stoke Radio who have been a great support.
