And children in the Stowmarket area cannot wait to find out when the annual Lions Santa Sleigh will be in their neighbourhood.

The details of 2018’s Santa Sleigh route have been released and we’ve got all the information you need.

What is the Stowmarket Lions Santa Sleigh?

Passing through Stowmarket and the surrounding towns and villages, Santa and his elves help to bring Christmas cheer to local families - as well as collecting thousands of pounds for local charities.

Stowmarket Lions chairman and Santa Sleigh tour manager Kev Parker said: “We have been doing this for 20 years now and each year we receive a fabulous welcome from the people and particularly the children of Stowmarket, Needham Market and Stowupland.

“This year we are again working closely with Stowmarket Foodbank as one of our Lions Charities and have had one thousand carrier bags printed up with a list of items that the foodbank needs.”

When can your children see Santa and his sleigh?
