Santa’s sleigh tours Braunton
Residents reminded not to miss the annual Braunton caen Rotary Santa Sleigh parade through the village throughout this week.
ON Saturday, Santa and his helpers from Braunton Caen Rotary Club were at Tesco Braunton cheering shoppers with Christmas music and sweets for the start of his tour of Braunton and Chivenor.
Tonight (Tuesday) he will be touring Second Field Lane to Pill Gardens and along South Street.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) the procession visits the RMB married quarters.
Then on Thursday it is the turn of Velator Close to Hart Manor and Wrafton Road school car park, Friday will be The Brittons along Lower Park Road to Acland Park and finally the last chance to catch Santa this year will be again at Tesco Braunton on Saturday from 2-4pm.
“Last year was a great success despite the atrocious weather, young and old were so happy to see Santa” said John Rendle one of the Rotary organisers,
“This is the highlight of our winter fund raising. Last year we raised �1,500 half of which provided two defibrillators, one now permanently based at Wensley’s Newsagents and the other at Ruda. The RMB Chivenor Community Fund benefited from the other half of funds raised.”
