Father Christmas is on his way – to a street near you in Spalding.

His annual sleighride tour of Spalding begins on Monday with a tour of 19 roads.

It will be wonderful to see so many children and their parents around the sleigh again – and we thank everyone for their generosity and support.

South Holland Rotary president Bob Bradley

As usual his reindeer and sleigh will be provided by the Rotary Club of South Holland – and

Rotarians escorting the sleigh will have support some evenings from other local charities and community groups, who will also benefit from the collections.

South Holland Rotary president Bob Bradley said: “It will be wonderful to see so many children and their parents around the sleigh again – and we thank everyone for their generosity and support.

”Rotary’s share of the money collected will certainly be well used – most going to help the ill, disabled and needy in Spalding”.
