Grove Santa Sleigh ? ?

Date: 14th Dec 2020 Author: Tracy Thomas

Grove Scouts are delighted to be able to welcome Santa and Rudolph back to Grove this Christmas.

We know that many children will have missed out on other opportunities to see Santa and so we will be heading out on three evenings this year, Sunday 20th to Tuesday 22nd December. Santa will be on the ground for a total of eight hours. A summary of our intended routes is shown on the link below.

We will not collect money door-to-door this year, but will provide alternative ways to donate to Grove Scout Group through text or online.   Donate online or text

Send GROVESANTA to 70085 to donate £3
Send FIVESANTA to 70085 to donate £5

Santa and those escorting him will wear gloves and face coverings for the duration of the event. They will maintain social distancing with each other and with members of the community during the event.
