These are the streets Santa will be visiting in Croydon before Christmas and when he will be there

Rotary Clubs are touring with their festive fundraising floats

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening – it is the time of year when Santa Claus will be making some special visits to Croydon in the lead up to Christmas.

Father Christmas is going to be touring the borough with help from his friends from the rotary clubs from early December.

Santa will be aboard his sleigh, or maybe you will see his house, and will travel through neighbourhood streets in the evenings collecting money for charities supported by the organisations.

You won’t be able to miss him – he will be brightly lit and there will be plenty of festive music.

As he passes by you’ll want to step out your front door and wave him by – and don’t forget to make a donation.

These are the streets Santa will be coming to in Croydon this year and when you can see him.
