Christmas Float Visits

At the moment it is more difficult to get out and about to see people because of the coronavirus epidemic, so Father Christmas has had to abandon his usual plans and make alternative arrangements for the meeting and greeting the children of Southam and our surrounding villages.

In addition to a number of Zoom meetings with him, when you will be able to tell him about yourself and what you would like for Christmas, he is planning to visit Southam and the villages listed above, so watch out for him. He will be in each place from 6pm each evening and will drive slowly round some of the roads so that you can wave to him from your house or garden. Unfortunately, he will not be able to stop anywhere this year. Watch out for further details of his route for each evening on our Facebook pages and website.

SCHEDULED VISITS:

Monday 7th – Long Itchington
Tuesday 8th – Bishops Itchington
Thursday 10th – Southam 1 (north)
