Please note that while we try our best to reach every street on the plan, sometimes circumstances dictate that we are unable to get to them all before it gets too late in the evening for the kids to come and meet Santa and therefore we reserve the right to change or cancel the above planned routes.

Please also note that we are all volunteers and give up our time to bring Christmas to Long Eaton as best we can, with this in mind we are always in need of extra hands this time of year so please get in touch if you want to help us this year!

      I’m sorry but we don’t cover Fields Farm. We did use to do that area but there are less of us in the club now and some routes have had to be cut down.
      However you can catch us in the town center or at Asda on Christmas eve.

      Hi Sarah,
      Unfortunatley we are down to only a handful of volunteers so we have been forced to make to hard decision to cut some of the routes and decide where to visit. We are still out for 5 nights and 2 saturdays as well as xmas eve so hope to see you perhaps in town if you are able to come and find us.

      Merry Christmas

    Hi, are you not doing Nottingham road area this year?

      Hi Hayley,

      It’s a real shame that this year we have had to cut back on the number of routes we can do, and unfortuantley that area is one of them. It is with heavy hearts that we make that call but we simply cannot cover what we use to due to the low number of helpers we have this year. We are constantly working to improve this and hope that we can return to these routes another year.
      Hopefully you will be able to come and see us in the town center on the saturdays or at Asda on christmas eve.

      Merry Christmas
      Long Eaton Round Table.

        Aww that is a real shame. My 8 year old asked me the other day when you’d be coming round. I remember it from when I was a kid. We’ll have to pop into town when you’re there instead. Thanks.

      Hi Amy,

      Unfortunately we are unable to cover Dovedale estate this year due to a drop in volunteers.
      We are however in Long Eaton town center on saturdays and at Asda on xmas eve so hopefully you can come and see us there.

      Merry Christmas

    hi it’s a reall shame the sleigh isn’t coming round Dovedale this year we look forward to it every year in fact tonight I thought it was coming round tonight cause I read 2008 sleigh dates whoops ! Our poor girls were ready and waiting and up late 😁 ! I would be more than happy to help out next year to bring the dales back on the map ! I’m sure there are others who would help too 👍emma

      Hi Emma,
      Yes it’s a real shame we have had to cut some routes this year and we are going to ask the community for help next year as otherwise we will end up having to cut all routes as there just wont be enough of us to run the event which is really sad considering how long it has been running.
      Your offer of help will be much appreciated and if its ok i would like to add you to our list of people to contact closer to next Christmas to check availability etc?

    Tonight I had two children waiting to see Santa. Unfortunately for some reason you didn’t appear to stick to the route advertised. Needless to say they went to bed upset. Very disappointed as you didn’t make it last year either. Please don’t advertise route plans in the future if you can’t stick to them. I understand you all volunteer etc and applaud the work you do but please don’t mislead us.

      Hi Mrs Guy,
      I’m very sorry that you had two children that were waiting for us however if it was on tuesday i believe we did the route as planned and managed to get around it entirely. Would you be able to let us know what day, time and road you were on so that I can check our routes to see if we have made a mistake somewhere?
      We are also in the town center on saturday so if you are able to come and see us then we would be very happy to have santa see your kids then.
      Again very sorry for the disappointed children.
