Santa Sleigh 2020

We know that seeing the sleigh is a big part of Christmas and so many of you say that 'Christmas begins when the sleigh has been' This has been a big part of Easingwold Lions for over 20 years. 

This year has been so different in many ways for all of us. It is with a heavy heart that we have decided not to take the sleigh out to all the villages which usually sees us out every night in December with 9 people every night. With a lot of our members over the age of 70 and not feeling it appropriate to ask volunteers to help us this year, the logistics of everyone getting to each village by their own means (we usually car share) and Santa unable to interact with all of you as he would normally do, it is just such a big risk to everyone involved and we feel it would be irresponsible of us to ignore the current situation with Covid 19. 

Instead we are going to be in Easingwold Market Place on the 12th, 18th and 24th December. We can ensure correct social distancing is in place and other safety precautions are adhered too. We will be there from 09:30 until 12:30pm. 

We hope you can come and see us there and we know that you will understand why we have taken this decision.
