I would like to extend Special thanks, to our host Derek and his beautiful garden,
Tina & David, Mary & Geoff, Pat, Chandu, Ann and Muzahid for all their help in making
the event such a great success.

Rotarians, school staff and the photographer from the Enfield Council. The school
children are expecting to return in Spring next year to see the flowers.

Santa visit tonight Saturday 15th December Cancellation. Very sorry folks but due
to the existing very poor weather conditions we will not be able to arrange Santa's
visit tonight. This visit would have covered Northern Avenue, Victoria Rd, Chalfont
Rd, Haselbury Rd, Park Lane, Warwick Road, Denton Rd, Bulwer Rd and Huxley Rd.
We are very sorry for the disappointment this will cause many families but we have
to consider the safety and wellbeing of our volunteers and of course Santa!
Rotary Club of Edmonton Father Christmas Float Routes 2018
We are now pleased to announce our Father Christmas routes for this year, around
Enfield and Edmonton. All routes will start at approximately 6.00 to 6.15pm and finish
at approximately 8.30pm. Please remember Rotary people are all volunteers and we
are also very lucky to be supported by local charities on each night, so do please
give generously for our charities. We would also like to thank Jemca Toyota Enfield
for their generous sponsorship.
As we are all volunteers we unfortunately cannot guarantee that Father Christmas
will visit as planned each night. It is possible that the routes may change, be shortened
or even cancelled at the last minute but we will do our very best to keep to our
Please also remember that these routes apply only to the Rotary Club of Edmonton
UK and there may well be other Rotary clubs and organisations with Christmas floats
We look forward to seeing you hope you and your children enjoy your time seeing Santa!
