Sadly, there will be no Santa's Grotto at Haddenham Garden Centre, but there will be other opportunities for the little ones to get a glimpse of Santa this Christmas.
Haddenham Rotary's 'Drive Thru Santa'
Haddenham & District Rotary's 'Drive Thru Santa' was a huge success last year and this will return for Christmas 2021
Santa will be based in his mobile grotto, strategically located in the junior school car park; families arrive in their own vehicles and via a marshalled queue (and a pre-booked schedule) they will be able to draw up alongside the grotto at a COVID safe distance, with car windows open so that children (and adults) can chat with a very friendly Santa.
The grotto has been improved this year and there will be presents for the children, so there will be a small charge. This will help Rotary to continue helping its designated charities.
There will be the option to donate and post a letter to Santa.

Courtesy of the Aylesbury Lions Club, Santa will be touring the streets of Haddenham on his float once again this year.
Subject to final confirmation, the proposed dates are:

- Tuesday 14th December
Two of the routes that were followed last year will be the same however the third route will need to be modified slightly.
Organisers will obviously take into consideration the current COVID regulations which though being relaxed since last year will still need to be observed.
