Events update.

Events for December have been affected by COVID 19.

As he is very old, Father Christmas has to keep at a distance this year and will not be able to arrive by lifeboat, but to cheer everyone up he has given permission for St Ives BID to put the Christmas lights on early from Wednesday 28th October. He will be carrying out his important Santa duties in secret hours to avoid contact.

Elves will be running a Christmas Window dressing competition based on the 12 days of Christmas and shops are going to be open late night every Thursday from 3rd December until the big day.

Thanks for all the Local Heros nominations. DPD Dale received the most and got to turn on the St Ives Christmas Lights. BBC Spotlight were there to cover the event. Video available on our Facebook page.

Look out Santa will be in town (safely distanced behind a window) on late night shopping nights starting 3rd December for 3 weeks. Can you find him and give him a wave?

Keep checking back for news on the upcoming food trail window competition and updates from Santa.
