Yes, we know, we can’t believe it either, but it really is only 4 sleeps now until Santa comes to Adderley to check out our christmas lights and switch on that beautiful Christmas tree for us.
We thought we ought to just confirm the details for Friday now that we know what the new guidance is going to be for Covid.
We’ve attached a map of the route Santa will travel, and he says he’s going to play lots of loud Christmas music, so you should be able to hear him coming. As he comes past, switch on your lights so he can see them, and the elves can check them out. Santa is starting his inspection at 6.30pm on Friday night; coming up Station Road, nipping down to the school and the roundabout for Adderley Barns, then back up to St Peter’s Court, then along Green Bank, into Meadow Bank, down Rectory Lane to the main road and lay-by, and then back up Rectory Lane, a sharp left into Corbett Drive, a quick inspection of lights up there and then over to the village green to check out the tree. Santa says he should be at the tree by 7.00 pm.
Have you got children who are isolating and won’t be able to come out to see Santa?
We know that some children in the village won’t be able to come out of the house to see Santa because they are isolating, but please let us know which houses these children are in, and we will do our best to let Santa know to slow right down and wave to them through the window. Let us know by email to firstname.lastname@example.org give an address and we will make sure Santa gets the information.
Can I go down to the village hall to see Santa Switch on the Lights?
Christmas is a special time for everyone, but we hope you will understand if we ask that families with children are the priority for this year, and to avoid there being too many people, we are asking that only households with children go down to the village hall for 7.00 pm (as long as they feel safe to do so). We ask that families stay socially distanced, and spread out around the tree so that everyone feels comfortable. Santa and the elves will be wearing masks when they get to the village hall.
All the grown ups can then amble down to admire our tree with its splendid lights at their leisure, after this, and then walk around the village in their family groups to admire the lights at people’s homes.
