Blakenall Saturday November 30, 2019
Our first sleigh route for 2019 is around Blakenall. We will start at 5:00pm and expect to be travelling for around 3½ hours.
We begin at the Lichfield Road end of Abbotts Street, marked with a red spot, and the route from there is roughly anti-clockwise:
- Abbotts Street
- Right into Benton Crescent
- Left onto Ryle Street
- Right into Pine Street
- Left onto Ingram Road
- Right into Penderel Street
- Left into Booth Street
- Left onto Stanley Street
- Right onto Hamilton Street
- Left onto Valley Road
- Right onto Ryle Street
- Left into Hollands Road
- Left into Abbotts Street
- End at Benton Crescent
We do not knock all doors on our journey – this is very much dependent upon the number of volunteers we have on the night, so please do come out if you wish to see Santa.
Donations received on the night will be split between Acorns Hospice, St. Giles Hospice and Rotary Foundation. All the money donated goes to these three charities.
Photography & Safety
We welcome you taking pictures with Santa (feel free to share on social media too). However please note that children should not climb into the sleigh.
Please follow the instructions from our marshals at all times, so we can ensure everyone can see Santa and stay safe.
Santa will stop only where it is safe to do so.
Tracking Santa Online
On the evening of each route, you can track Santa’s location in real-time online here, so there’s no need to stand outside in the cold weather for too long!
Santa is brought to you by a team of volunteers, and we always welcome any extra help we can get. If you can spare an evening or two to help us provide this service to Bloxwich please contact us.
