Santa’s Sleigh Ride Starts Next Monday

The reindeer have been fed, the sleigh has been repaired and Santa and his elves are almost ready to visit the children in Henley and Shiplake.

Run by Henley Lions, Santa sets off each evening at 6.00pm and will finish by 8.00pm.  Santa’s planned routes are below but if the weather is too wet or too icy he will have to cancel, but if so they’ll add extra dates at the end of the schedule.

Just to let you know Santa can’t take cards, so please have cash ready for his collecting buckets, as all the money goes to local good causes.  Last year Santa’s sleigh raised a staggering £4,000 and this wonderful Henley tradition brought smiles to hundreds of children’s faces.
