December brings Santa to Belper again, thanks to the Belper and Duffield Rotary Club. As usual the Rotary will be helping Santa to see as many children as possible on his travels around Belper and Duffield whilst collecting for charity.
Will Santa be in your street this December? Below are the dates and routes of the Santa Sleigh and the dates that Santa will be visiting other places in Belper (in case his sleigh couldn’t get down your road because his reindeer are resting up for Christmas Eve and he can’t fly until they are ready). All of the Sleigh Runs start at 5:30pm.
