Santa is coming to Melksham – with a little help from his friends!

Story posted on

SANTA is coming to Melksham and he has asked members of Melksham Lions Club to help him spread a little Christmas cheer around town!

Santa and his reindeer will be in Melksham for the Christmas Fayre and big Christmas lights switch- on, taking place on Saturday 3rd December, and he will be out and about around local housing estates and visiting local supermarkets and pubs during the weeks leading up to the big day.

The Lions say, “The Santa Float is one of the highlights of our year, giving us a chance to get out and meet the community and spread a bit of happiness.

“We have managed to double our street walks this year, with thanks to The Meads of Melksham, and hopefully it will be a better year this year after all the difficulties of the past two years – we hope to see many of your faces this festive season.

“We would like to thank all of our sponsors and volunteers for their time, without them we wouldn’t be able to get out to see so many people. It is not too late to volunteer! We still need volunteers for all the moving sleigh dates. Please message us on our facebook page or through our website.
