Santa's Grotto 2022 Update

Raunds Town Council is very disappointed that because its provider has withdrawn their support at very short notice, it will not be possible for this year's Santa's Grotto to proceed as intended on 16-19 December. However, the Council will donate all of the presents from this year's event to the Hill Street Vintage Collection Santa on a Tractor fundraiser and to Raunds Food Bank.

The Mayor of Raunds, Councillor Richard Levell, said, 'It is a great shame that we are unable to put on a Christmas Grotto this year, but I am pleased that we have come up with an alternative plan'.

The Chairman of the Events Committee, Councillor Magdalena Levell, said, 'The Council looks forward to working with Brian Kettell (Santa on a Tractor) to deliver to the children of Raunds the Christmas presents we bought for the grotto'.

Santa will be visiting Raunds on Sunday 11 December and spreading plenty of Christmas cheer, please see below the Santa on a Tractor schedule.
