Devizes Tourist Information
Father Christmas will tour many of the streets of Devizes as he has for over twenty-five years, accompanied by his clown-suited ‘helpers’.
He will be in the Lions carol float, which gives him a chance to meet the children and to give them a sweet or two. It is also the occasion when the Club makes one of its most important fund-raising collections of the year to enable it to continue its support those in need.
This year, weather permitting, he will visit on weekday evenings until 21st December, starting at about 5.30pm and finished by about 7.45pm. He will also be in The Brittox during the day on Thursday 12th and outside Morrisons on the 21st. Details of his tours are as follows, but changes due to weather and challenges outside our control will appear on the Club website - www.devizeslions.org.uk.
