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 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 19th November until the big day.
NHS workers, carers, shop workers and many other people locally have gone above and beyond, helping the community throughout this difficult year. We would like to highlight some these people on our Facebook and web site. Please tell us your stories of those that have helped and brought smiles back on people’s faces in these difficult and usual times so we can celebrate them on our web page.
Keep an eye out here for news and updates from Santa.
