Our penultimate route for 2012 was Lower Farm on Friday 14 December. We once again had help from Terry (Bloxwich Carnival Chairman), and councillors Shaun & Julie Fitzpatrick. They, like our Rotary volunteers, turned out in the rain for the start of our Lower Farm route.
We had a few teething problems early on the route, with no sound for the first street, causing us to start a little late, so apologies to anyone who was waiting for us! We had it fixed after a short while and normal service was resumed!
The night started wet, but it slowed and stopped for most of the route and we collected a good total of £192,68 on the night, so big thanks to everyone who supported us. We hope you enjoyed seeing Santa on his visit.
Our next route will be Turnberry on Saturday 15 December, where we start at the earlier time of 4:30pm. If you’re in the area please come and see us.
Whilst we travelled it was possible to track us online here (from a PC) or here (from a mobile device), and this service will be active for our other routes too. It’s a great way to reduce the amount of time you might otherwise spend outside in the cold.
If you’ve requested a letter from Santa for our final route please let one of our collectors know as we pass and we’ll make sure we get your letter(s) to their intended recipients.
Finally, another big thank you, this time to Stuart Williams of the Bloxwich Telegraph, who came out to take some photos of us. Your help and promotional support has been very much appreciated. We’ll add some links to his story and photos when they’re published.
