Santa in 2019
As there are four Sundays before Christmas in December 2019, we hope to visit Old Farm Park, Poets Estates in Newport Pagnell and Bletchley, Bletchley Saints and Far Bletchley.
We’ve reflected on how things went in 2018, and we were delighted, but we plan to make things even better for 2019!
We’ve looked at the routes and there may be some slight changes, as we have sometimes doubled back on ourselves. Hopefully we may be able to add in some new roads too. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for all the details nearer the time.
We have also made the decision that the float, which we have cared for since 2011, needs a bit of tlc. Having stripped off the tinsel and lights we have discovered that it needs a bit more than a lick of paint, so we are having regular working parties to get the sleigh ready.
Thanks to a fabulous donation from Johnstone’s Trades Paints we don't need to buy any undercoat or gloss for the main part.
As well as the back of the sleigh being fire damaged many years ago (before we took ownership of it) and needing rebuilding, the wood at the front had also deterioated over the years, so a huge thank you to Buttles in Leighton Buzzard who donated the wood we needed. We will also need some black and silver paint, and possibly some weatherproof stickers. If you would like to donate materials to help us keep our costs down, then please get in touch via our “Contact Us” page.
