Please note: the Lions Club always do their best to adhere to the published schedules but sometimes weather conditions or roadside parking constraints in the tighter areas of Haddenham mean that changes need to be made 'on the hoof'.

The route will be:
We will turn right out of the Co-op car park and proceed up TIBBS ROAD.

From Church End Green Santa's Sleigh will proceed along CHURCHWAY then into THE GABLES.
Leaving the Gables (approx. time 6.00pm) the slay will turn right into WILLIS ROAD
ROBERTS ROAD and HARTS ROAD are rather tight for the Sleigh so it may not be possible for Santa to go along these roads. However, children will be able to meet Santa along WILLIS ROAD.
At the end of Willis Road, the sleigh will turn into STANBRIDGE ROAD and stop near MEAD FURLONG & FAIRFIELD CLOSE giving children and adults a chance to meet and greet Santa (time approx. 6.35pm)

Santa will be following a circular route round the estate. starting at CRICKETERS WAY, BARN OWL LANE, MASLIN ELMS, ALDERSON WAY, HEDGEHOG WAY & WILLOUGHBY LANE, plus side roads.
Every effort will be made to ensure that the children are able to meet Santa — subject to weather conditions and (sometimes) difficult roadside parking constraints.

Turning right from Bradmoor Farm Santa will proceed to the junction by the post office with Churchway then cross over and travel down RUDDS LANE to TOWNSEND GREEN.
Then into the "PLATERS ESTATE" (circular route)
Leaving the estate Santa will continue down the road to BANKS ROAD (opposite the Rising Sun) turning left along to the BANKS PARADE car park, pausing by shops for local children to come and see Santa.
