Santa Claus is coming to town…Rotary Santa returns to Wednesfield

Every year volunteers for the Rotary club bring Santa to the streets of Wednesfield making collections for charity and spreading a little Christmas cheer along the way and this year is no different. Below is a list of dates where Santa and his Rotary friends will be hitting the streets around our way.

Please bare in mind Santa and his helpers are volunteers, they can not get everywhere they’d like to in the limited time they have and while start and finish times are published we cannot say with any accuracy exact times for set streets. Most collections with the Sleigh commence at 6.00pm and end at about 8.00pm other vary see listings below BUT this is all dependent on road conditions, the way cars are parked allowing for access volunteers and whole array of other eventualities beyond their control….
