It’s been a disaster of a year and we were really concerned that the icing would be put on the cake if Santa wasn’t allowed to travel around Hereford….however, Hereford Lions Club have confirmed that fortunately, that won’t be the case!


A spokesperson for Hereford Lions Club said:

“After a lot of working out we can announce that the Sleigh will be going out this year although with a lot of things that we have to cover for safety wise.

“We are only going to be able to do some routes within the city as we will be unable to stop. The idea is that we will have a lead car ahead of the sleigh to let you know that we are coming, so when you hear please come out to your front gates or lean out of the bedroom windows and Santa will give you all a wave.

“Unfortunately we will not be able to come into every street due to turning the sleigh around. We will put the routes on here the day before so please check.

“We are doing our best to get it out and apologise now that we can’t get to everyone’s street. We at Hereford Lions Club thank you for your continued support. We have set up a donate by text service, so you will be able to donate to the Lions as we travel around. Details of this will be shared in the near future and displayed on the Sleigh.”
