Look out (and listen) for Father Christmas

Look out (and listen) for Father Christmas

FATHER Christmas will tour Henley and Shiplake once again this year.

He will be driven in his sleigh around residential streets accompanied by several of his “elves”.

The helpers will not be allowed to knock on doors to ask for donations due to the threat of coronavirus. Donations can be made online instead.

Christmas music will be played loudly along the route to let children and residents know when Santa has arrived.

Each day’s visit will start at 6pm and his journey can be tracked on the Facebook page of Henley Lions Club, which has helped to organise the initative.

The schedule is as follows (all Henley unless stated):

Monday, December 6: St Mark’s Road, the Gainsborough estate, Green Lane and St Andrew’s Road.
