Santa and his sleigh on streets of the city

Warwickshire Telegraph - - NEWS - By LAURA HART­LEY

FA­THER Christ­mas will be mak­ing his way through Coven­try as the dates and route for this year’s Santa tracker have been re­leased.

The ever-pop­u­lar event, run by the Coven­try Ro­tary Clubs, takes to the streets of Coven­try to give kids the chance to meet Santa.

Santa will be mak­ing his way through the var­i­ous ar­eas of the city right un­til Christ­mas Eve.

Dur­ing the weeks lead­ing up to Christ­mas Eve, Santa and his sleigh will be mak­ing evening ap­pear­ances from 5.30pm un­til 8.30pm.

At the week­ends, fam­i­lies will have all day to catch a glimpse of the main man him­self.

It is all done for char­ity and this year money will be raised for Coven­try My­ton Hospice and The Air Am­bu­lance Ser­vice.

Ev­ery week­end there will be static stops and the sleigh will stop for chil­dren to take a seat and talk to Santa him­self.

This year Santa and his sleigh will be mak­ing his way round Coundon, Wil­len­hall, Alles­ley, Court­house Green, Earls­don, Hol­brooks, Keres­ley, Rad­ford, Po­ets Cor­ner, Tile Hill and Wyken.

The sleigh will be trav­el­ling around a num­ber of roads in these ar­eas to give chil­dren and fam­i­lies the chance to meet Santa dur­ing the fes­tive pe­riod.

At the week­ends, it will be stop­ping for sev­eral hours at a time at com­mu­nity cen­tres, shop­ping parks and vil­lage shops. In 2016, £18,400 was raised for numer­ous char­i­ties.

More de­tails of the ex­act routes can be found on the of­fi­cial Santa Tracker web­site.
