Sunday 19th December

The Father Christmas Run – For obvious reasons we will not be having a run to a local children’s hospital this year.

However, we can give ourselves a bit of festive cheer by having a “Father Christmas Run” ourselves.

As in other years we can dress our cars, and ourselves in festive mood, then have a run through the towns of St Neots, Huntingdon and St Ives before ending at a venue for refreshments, yet to be decided. Are you up for it?

If so let Chris know.
