Burnham-On-Sea’s Hillview Carnival Club hopes to help Santa Claus tour the town’s streets this Christmas for charity – socially-distanced and with extra Covid safety measures in place.
The club is making plans to continue the long-running tradition of taking Santa on his sleigh around the towns once the lockdown ends in the run-up to Christmas.
A Hillview spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “This has become an annual tradition each Christmas in Burnham and Highbridge and this year it’s more important than ever to spread a little festive cheer.”
“We have applied for a charity collection licence and are awaiting the outcome of the application from the council.”
The club will stay distanced and safe, while raising money for Children’s Hospice South West.
