Rotary Tree of Life and Santa Sleigh
The town Christmas lights and Tree of Life switching on ceremony was observed by a sizeable crowd, in addition, to apparently another 3,000 people online.
With the support and generosity of local business, Shipston Rotary took Santa, in his new sleigh and grotto (thanks to Unity Cross Roads in Tredington) around the town throughout December. The sleigh was all lit up and played Christmas music. Santa’s new grotto was constructed thanks to Shipston Building and Plumbing Supplies, who supplied the materials.
While Santa was limited in what he could do he still made lots of friends from a distance. Everyone, not just Shipston parents and children were as generous as ever making donations to Rotary charities.
Rotary President David Gill, Amit Patel (Pharmacy To My Door) and Town Mayor Cllr Ian Cooper switched on the lights on the Tree of Life.
