Santa Sleigh Runs set to bring Christmas cheer to Market Deeping, Deeping St James and villages
After a slight delay, Father Christmas's annual sleigh tour of the Deepings got under way this week.
The Deepings Lions and Rotary fundraising sleigh runs have become a staple part of the festive season, but were held up until Thursday because of the second national lockdown.
Father Christmas will be around from 6pm until 9pm each evening, but no cash collections will take place on the routes this year because of Covid-19 restrictions.
Children are invited to go out and wave, but are asked not to approach the sleigh this year.
Santa and his Sleigh can also be found outside Tesco’s in Market Deeping, every Saturday in December.
