Whitchurch Rotary Club has revealed when and where Father Christmas will be for this year's Santa Sleigh tour.

The event is a long-running Rotary Club tradition, and will see Father Christmas visit the communities of Whitchurch and the surrounding villages.

Last year's event took place, albeit with social distancing restrictions and this year's event will be largely similar, although door-knocking will return.

A spokesman for the Rotary Club said: "We will be back to travelling with our volunteer collectors and knocking on your doors or ringing your doorbells.

"You will still be able to follow our progress on our tracker with the link being published each night just before we leave our base, remember it's a new link each night.

"We will be maintaining social distancing and will appreciate your cooperation.

"We hope you all have a wonderful, peaceful and safe Christmas period."
