Santa Claus is coming to Harlow this weekend

News / Tue 15th Dec 2020 at 02:04pm

FATHER Christmas is coming to Harlow a week early to spread festive cheer on a parade around the town with his elves in a sleigh drawn by reindeer.

Barringtons Funeral Directors has been liaising with Santa to arrange a visit to Harlow on Saturday December 19th.

Reindeer will pull his ornate sleigh while a crew of sweet little elves collect money for local hospices Isabel and St Clare. Onlookers should listen out for festive music and bells and keep an eye out for the sleigh’s twinkling fairy lights and lanterns.

While it is hoped the spectacle will bring some festive normality, Covid-19 restrictions still must be observed. Children are urged to wave to Santa from their front doors, windows or driveways. The route has been planned with this in mind, covering as many streets as possible so fewer people need to leave their homes.

Barringtons business partners Nikki Field and Lisa Aldridge Weeks, who have orchestrated the festive extravaganza, said: “Our sole aim is to bring a little magic to an otherwise difficult year. We both have young children and the schools have been hit hard.

“It’s also been an incredibly difficult time for charities, so we’ve decided to raise money for Isabel Hospice and St Clare Hospice.”
