Father Christmas will be visiting our village again this year, thanks to the ‘Rotary Club of Rushcliffe’. This is now the name of our local branch after the West Bridgford, Ruddington and Keyworth groups merged last year.

Santa and his sleigh have become popular annual fixtures in the village, touring our streets and estates each December to get everyone in the spirit and to raise money for Rotary charities home and abroad. This year the chosen local charities are Dove Hospice and the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance. Aside from a little sleigh maintenance each year, every penny collected goes straight to those good causes.

As always, Old Saint Nick will be joined by his little helpers, with volunteers from Ruddington Colts FC and the Friends of James Peacock helping to spread festive cheer around the village. With seasonal tunes aplenty, Santa’s visits are great fun for the children, so please show our local Rotary Club your support and give generously if you can.

Here are this year’s dates and places:

Wednesday 11th December
Churchill Drive estate, Old Station Road and Pasture Lane estate

Thursday 12th December
Camelot Street, Clifton Road, Packman Drive and Rufford Road

Tuesday 17th December
Musters Road, Barleylands and Elms Park

All visits will take place in the evening between 5.30pm and 8.30pm.

SANTA CLAUS SPOTTING TIPS:

  • Look for the man in the red suit with the white beard. That’s Santa!
  • If you have double glazing, be sure to open a window just a little so you can hear Santa coming.
  • He has lots of boys and girls to see and will be travelling quickly. Be sure to be ready and wave.

Rushcliffe Parkrun @ Rushcliffe Country Park
Jan 11 @ 9:00 am

Rushcliffe Parkrun is a weekly 5km run – you against the clock – every Saturday at 9:00am.

It’s run in Rushcliffe Country Park, Nottingham, NG11 6JS. This is the course…

It costs nothing to join in but you’re asked to register before your first run. Only ever register with Parkrun once. Don’t forget to take a printed copy of your barcode (request a reminder). If you forget it, you won’t get a time.

And you’re welcome along whatever your pace!

Wherever possible organisers urge you to walk, jog, cycle or use public transport when attending the event. If you do have to drive, please consider car-sharing to reduce our impact on both the environment and other park users. Please also watch out for other park users when arriving and leaving. Parking may be limited so try to arrive early.

These are a guided health walks every Wednesday at 10.30am, starting at the education centre in the Country Park. The route varies from week to week around the park, usually no longer than 2 miles. The walk leader will adapt the route to suit the walkers – with a choice of walks to match your fitness and level of ability: a 30 minute shorter walk around the lake: or a longer walk of up to an hour.

ALSO: Friends of RCP coffee mornings take place from 10am until 12.00 noon on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month. So you’re invited to “Linger By The Lake” for refreshments after the walk on these days.
