Since 2011 we have been privileged to accompany Santa as he travels around Milton Keynes in December.
We usually knock on doors as we pass, so that people can see the float, and we also raise money for local causes. However as a result of Covid-19 we made some changes for 2020 and we are going to keep with most of them for 2021.
We always like to support a local charity and this year we have chosen to raise money for The Henry Allen Trust who provide benefits for the patients of children’s hospital oncology units.
We are very much hoping that we will still be able to visit Old Farm Park & Brown's Wood, Poets Estate in Newport Pagnell, Poets Estate in Bletchley and Saints Estate & Far Bletchley, with Santa, as we have done for many years.
Except for Newport Pagnell, the routes will be the same as previous years, including Church Green Road in Bletchley, which we added to the Saint’s Estate route in 2019. We hope to add a couple of new roads to the end of our route in Newport Pagnell so our timings may change a little. For more details of our routes, see each event.
As there are only 3 Sundays in December before Christmas, we are also moving our visit to Old Farm Park and Brownswood from the beginning of the month to Friday 17th December.
To begin, we will pop leaflets through the doors of the houses on each route at least a couple of days before. For everyone's safety, we won't be knocking on doors on the night, instead we are asking you to listen out for us and then stay safely by your door, or on your drive or garden to wave to Santa. We also ask people to social distance from people you don’t live with and not gather around the float.
Although we will carry buckets to collect cash if people have it, we will also have credit card readers to take payment on the night and our QR code so you can donate that way too.
