This is subject to the Government Guidelines and Covid 19 Restrictions. Adverse weather conditions or any other occurrences beyond our control may result in the Sleigh being delayed or even cancelled on any given night.

Santa and his Sleigh will be touring the streets and we would appreciate it if you would give us a wave and shout hello to help bring some Christmas Cheer. Unfortunately, the Sleigh will not be stopping for Santa to chat with the children, as he has done in the past or to hand out sweets, and with Social Distancing in place we would please ask that you do not come up close to the Sleigh. Please observe all the safety rules we will put in place and Social Distance where possible so we can all enjoy a safe and Happy Christmas and bring you some Christmas Cheer with Santa and his Sleigh.

Litter picking for Spalding

During the Pandemic one of our Spalding Lions, Lion Eileen Robson met Robert on her daily exercise of walking round the Park. Robert told her that he was collecting the rubbish which was strewn around to try to make it tidier.  Every day he was there with his bag and gloves (supervised by his Mum). He told Lion Eileen it was soon his Birthday and he really wanted and hoped he would get a litter picker.  Lion Eileen was so impressed by his determination to clean the Park she suggested that Spalding Lions gave him his own litter picker for all his hard work in the Community. Robert was so pleased to receive this from Lion Eileen from Spalding Lions.

Well done Robert. Thank you for all your hard work picking up litter.
