Santa’s Sleigh in Slingsby on Wednesday 2nd December 2015

santa's sleigh

Santa’s Sleigh will pass through Slingsby this Wednesday evening, 2nd December, courtesy of Malton Norton and District Lions Club.

His trip will start in Hovingham at 4.45 p.m. and finish in Appleton le Street around 9 p.m.

He hopes to greet many children, also he collects contributions towards the charitable work that Lions do – we benefit in Slingsby by the monthly delivery of low cost fish and chips to the elderly and housebound, for example.

Any changes to the planned times will be announced on Facebook and Twitter (using the hashtag #MaltonLionsSanta) and on the Lions website. The website homepage gives some details of the great work done locally by the Lions.

And finally, a lovely piece of helper elf nonsense here
