Countdown to Reindeer Parade

THE 11th Wells Rotary Reindeer Parade will take place on Sunday, December 3.

The event will be opened by the Mayor of Wells, Councillor John North, and the president of the Rotary Club of Wells, Richard Cussell, at 10.50am.

The parade of Santa Claus in his sleigh, pulled through the city by real reindeer and accompanied by Town Crier Len Sweales and Wells City Band, will start at noon.

Before and after the parade there will be music by bands and choirs, rides and other entertainments in the Market Place. There will be stalls selling festive foods, drinks and seasonal goods and gifts.

Last year’s parade raised more than £2,500 by programme sales, public donations and generous support from the local business community. This money was passed on to support the vital work of the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

Programmes costing £1 are on sale now at the museum and the Crown Hotel.
