Santa is coming to the streets of Holbeach!
Children in Holbeach will be able to wave at Santa and his sleigh as he makes his way around the town.
Martin Forward and John Budworth, who own The Crown Hotel, will be bringing their specially commissioned Santa Sleigh to streets and stop-off points to add some festive cheer while also supporting two good causes.
The first sleigh ride on Monday, December 13, will start at 5pm and take in West End, Spalding Road, Langwith Drive, Langwith Gardens, The Square, Western Avenue, Netherfield, Hall Gate, Church Street, Back Lane, Westend, East Elloe Avenue, Boston Road and back to the Crown.
The route of the second ride, on Tuesday, December 14, at 5pm will be High Street, St John’s Lane, Fishpond Lane, Damgate, Fleet Road, Foxes Lowe Road, Wilders Garth, The Square, Foxes Lowe Road again, Battlesfield Lane, King George V Avenue, Low Lane, Battlesfield Lane, Park Lane, Edinburgh Walk and High Street.
The final sleigh ride on Monday, December 20 will move into Whaplode. The route will include Cob Gate, Church Gate, Mill Lane, High Road and Stockwell Gate. There will be a short stop in Stockwell Gate.
A number of sleigh stops will be held on Saturdays in December. The sleigh will be at All Saints Church on December 4 from 11am to 3pm; The Crown car park on December 11 from 11am to 3pm and Tesco in Holbeach on December 18.
Last year the event raised £3,067.14 and they are hoping to surpass that total.
This year’s Santa Swarm will be raising money for Holbeach Hospital and Harold Payne’s memorial garden to honour service men who have died in conflicts.
