Santa out and about with Lions’ Christmas float

Story posted on

SANTA has asked the members of the Melksham Lion Club to help him when he visits the residents of Melksham this Christmas.   

Santa and his reindeer, with some help from the Lions, will be touring the streets of Melksham, and setting up camp in a number of locations across the town for children to come and visit. 

The Lions say, “After an agonising two years Melksham Lions Club are pleased to announce that we will once again be out and about with Santa and his reindeer. 

“Due to driver availability we can only go around three areas but you can still come and see us at many static venues in and around Melksham in the run up to Christmas.   

“Don’t forget to look at our Facebook page for updates: www.facebook.com/ melkshamlionsclub.”
