Father Christmas to tour the streets of Westbury – with a little help from his friends!

Story posted on

WESTBURY Lions’ Christmas float with Father Christmas will be back touring the town this year!   

Westbury Lions have had confirmation from Santa himself that he will be visiting the town’s children from 1st December.  

The popular Lions event had to take a year off in 2020 due to pandemic restrictions, with the group opting to host a ‘Zoom with Santa’ session to make sure that no family missed out on seeing Father Christmas but is back this year.  

Santa’s route is below and can also be found on the Lions website – www.westburylions.org. uk. You can follow Father Christmas’s every move with a handy tracker to find out just where the man in red is. 

The page refreshes automatically with the updated position every 60 seconds – the blue dots show you where the float has already been, while the Father Christmas icon shows where the float was last spotted. The tracker is also available on the Lions website. 

Nigel Coward, a Westbury Lion said, “After a year off it will be great fun for us to get out with Santa again. Hopefully we haven’t forgotten any roads this year!”
