Santa is looking forward to seeing as many Long Leys residents as possible tomorrow (Tuesday) night and has asked children to draw a Christmas picture to put in their windows when he visits, so he knows where to wave.
As some of the roads in Long Leys are a little difficult to navigate with a sleigh, he will have to leave his reindeer at home and will be making use of an open topped car. Santa will be accompanied by marshals who will be be on foot. Please do keep a watchful eye on children and pets. Hygiene standards and social distancing will be followed. Please come to your door or your garden gate to give Santa a wave, or stand on one of the green spaces as he passes by and do not approach Santa or his helpers.
Below are the routes that Santa will take.
