Santa’s Sleigh 2018

Christmas is coming! Santa and his sleigh will soon be travelling the streets of Swanage, Langton Matravers and Corfe Castle – new this year, with support from Crazy4Corfe! 

To the sound of seasonal music, Santa will have sweets for the children and tickets for a prize draw to win a giant Christmas hamper, donated by Hays Travel.

Santa’s elves will be collecting for Rotary-supported local projects. We should be visiting the areas listed further down this page on the dates shown, between 6 – 8pm. Please note that some of the routes have been changed this year.
