Chippenham Lions will be bringing Santa and the Carol Float around many of the same routes as usual.

"We hope to get out there as soon after lockdown is lifted as possible," said the Lions' Martin Horton.

The float will tour the streets and will stop along the way to meet and greet the many families and children.

Covid restrictions don't allow for the usual door-to-door collection so there will be an on-line donation button for the first time.

Santa's Visit Diary can be found on Chippenham Lions website. and the float gets underway just after 5:30pm on most evenings, and continues its tour for three hours.
