Formby Rotary Club Santa Wagon starts it's rounds on Friday 1st December

Formby Rotary are gearing up for another busy December touring Formby with Father Christmas on his Carol Wagon. The tours start on Friday 1st December and the dates and streets to be covered appear below or on the Bubble website or Formby Rotary Club website

These tours are the Clubs main fundraiser each year. From the monies raised the Club can support various local charities and good causes. Over the years the Carol Wagon has become a local institution often with four generations of a family stood on the pavement waiting excitedly for Father Christmas' arrival!

Once again the Rotary Club would like to thank the people of Formby for their amazing generosity over the years and hope that in this their 50th Anniversary year they can make it a bumper year!

The Rotary Club do try their best to cover all roads but if your road is not on the list, you can take advantage of taking your children to see Father Christmas at Tesco in Formby from 9:45am on Saturday 23rd December.
