A year in the planning this last Sunday Social will not disappoint. Who cannot like the classic Christmas's of old with Val in his Christmas jumper singing carols round the tree. (Otto ask your mother Grandmother who Val Doonican was)
This ride will be different IT WILL NOT START AT 9:00am, have you all got that? Ok hence the advance notice.
It will depart Derby at 11:00am prompt from the Broadway, there will be an afternoon cafe stop, before repairing to Santa's Grotto arriving between 3:45- 4:00pm. Upon arrival Sherry and Mince Pies will be on hand for the older children, and squash for the younger ones. At 4:30pm prompt the Carol Service round the tree will commence ending at 5:30pm before rolling down the hill back into Allestree. (Approximately 5 minutes from Santa's Grotto, spooky that who would have thought it )
Over exited children of all ages are welcome, one can go direct to Santa's Grotto without the ride.
Due to availability from Scott we will have to make do with the Saint Helens Singers in leading the warm up this year.
Just to clarify for you Peter This Social Ride will have two cake stops one at the cafe and the second at the Church. hopefully that will make up for this months debacle.
Secure parking will be available for the bicycles during the service, obviously lights will be required for those riding home from St Paul's in Quarndon.
So that we can ensure Santa's helpers do not run out of victuals (Cake & Mince Pies) can people please register their interest on this thread.
