OUR NEXT EVENT: FATHER CHRISTMAS IN LODDON VALLEY DURING DECEMBER- Details available mid November

Father Christmas Activities During December

Subject to Coronavirus restrictions in place at the time, Loddon Valley Lions hope to take Father Christmas out and about again this year in the run up to Christmas. However, operations will need to be different from those in previous years. See the message below from Father Christmas for more information

As you will know, Loddon Valley Lions also organise other events each year (The Tadley Treacle Fair, Fireworks Extravaganza, Etc) to raise funds in support of their charitable activities in their local community. The pandemic has forced the cancellation of most of these events and as a result, only limited funds are available to help the less fortunate in our community at the present time. 

If you would like to help Loddon Valley Lions top up their funds to help make a better Christmas for others, please use the donate button below.

An important Message from Father Christmas

Father Christmas salutes Loddon Valley LionsLike many countries I visit around the world, my friends and helpers at Loddon Valley Lions are very aware of the problems caused by the Coronavirus Pandemic. As a result, changes are being made to the way my sleigh will operate this year. Unlike previous years, with my helpers knocking on doors, regular stops and children being able to approach me, this year will be restricted to Rudolf slowly driving me through the residential streets with little or no stopping. I will be unable to accept pictures for my colouring competition directly from children, but facilities will be made available for children to put their pictures into a box on my sleigh or, to submit their pictures by other means. Similarly, it will not be possible for children to get close to me to pose for photographs to be taken by their parents or others.

The summary of routes and dates provided in the leaflet which is to be distributed to houses in the area served by Loddon Valley Lions may be subject to review however, any changes will be regularly updated on this website and the Loddon Valley Lions Facebook page. That leaflet will also contain the Childrens Colouring competition as in previous years and as always, additional copies of the competition template will be downloadable from this website.

As with last year, I am hoping It will also be possible for you to track my progress each evening, by using a link which will be posted on this website. Some consolidation of routes may have to take place. Rounds will generally start around 6pm (slightly earlier on Fridays and Saturdays) and finish around 7.30pm. Detailed timings will be posted and updated as necessary, on this website which will always provide the latest and most up-to-date information available.

To compensate for this scaled-down activity Loddon Valley Lions are also looking at setting up “Zoom Santa” via an online platform. The appropriate link will be provided from this website, so that parents will be able to book slots for their children to talk to Santa about their Christmas wishes. There will be a small charge to use this facility. Watch this space, for more details as and when they become available.
