Santa and sleigh laughing all the way to Tattershall and Coningsby

Those thinking they’d have to wait until Christmas Eve to receive a visit from Santa had a pleasant surprise as he was visiting Coningsby on Saturday!

The Coningsby and Tattershall Lions Club launched their annual Santa’s Sleigh over the weekend, beginning with a visit to Coningsby’s Co-op store.

The sleigh will be embarking on a tour of the area from now up until December 22, and the full list of addresses the sleigh will visit is listed below.

All of the nightly journeys will begin at 5.30pm.

Taking on Santa’s duties is Lions vice president, Peter Green, who said: “It’s been going really well so far and its’s always lovely to see the children so excited.

“It’s a shame we can’t have them climb up and sit in the sleigh to talk to Santa and have their photo taken because of the pandemic, but it’s still been lovely to do and we normally expect to raise thousands of pounds for local good causes.”

Children are only allowed to sit or stand by the side of the sleigh to talk to Santa and for photos to keep everyone safe.

The Lions will be bringing collection buckets for donations and all money raised will be given back to the local community.
