We are very excited to share with you our plans for the Santa Sleigh in 2020, bringing Santa to visit all the lovely people in Amersham, Chesham Bois and Little Chalfont and spreading some festive cheer! This year for the first time we are also bringing Santa to Hazlemere and Widmer End, and we're also looking at other areas we might be able to visit.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic things will be a little different from previous years. Please see below for further details, and please keep checking back for any updates or changes.
Our plans will be subject to change in order to comply with whatever rules and guidelines are in force at the time, but we are planning to continue with the Santa Sleigh for as long as it is possible to do so.
December 15th 2020 - Santa will be out again tomorrow (Wednesday 16th December) in Chesham Bois between 17:00 and 19:00, and then around Hazlemere on Saturday 19th December between 15:30 and 19:30.
We're hoping to bring Santa round to see as many people as possible, however in order to keep everybody safe, we are asking everybody to follow the safety guidelines below:
- Please remain on your own property and wave to Santa from a safe distance.
- Please do not approach Santa or the sleigh. This year we will unfortunately not be able to give out any sweets or chocolates.
- Please do not gather in large groups. If this happens we will have to leave the area.
- Please do not approach Santa or any of his elves to give a donation. This year we are only accepting donations online or via text message.
- Please ensure you comply with whatever government guidelines and restrictions are in force at the time.
How To Donate
Every year Round Table raises thousands of pounds from the Santa Sleigh to support a number of different local charities and good causes. For some charities the Santa Sleigh is their biggest fundraiser of the year. This year we will not be able to knock on doors or accept any donations while Santa is going around town. Instead we will be taking donations online or via text message. Please give generously to support your local community.

It will not be possible to bring the sleigh into every side road or cul-de-sac. The detailed routes show the roads we are intending to visit. We are really sorry if we are not able to visit your street this year.
This is the first time that we have run the Santa Sleigh in this format. We will try our best to complete the full route on each day, and will get around as many of the roads as possible. We apologise in advance if we are not able to visit every road, or stick to the routes and times given above.
Please check on the Santa Tracker to see where we are on each day.
If required, we will run an additional route on Sunday 20th December for any missed roads, or if we have to cancel any routes due to bad weather.
While we are out on the Santa Sleigh routes, you can use the Santa Tracker to find out when Santa is getting near to you. Please also refer to the detailed routes above to see which way we're intending to go round the roads.
Who are Chiltern Hundreds Round Table?
"Isn't the Santa Sleigh usually run by Amersham Round Table?"
If that's what you're thinking, then that's a good question! Amersham Round Table have been spreading Christmas cheer in the Amersham area by running a Santa Sleigh for over 50 years, while also raising thousands of pounds to support local charities and other good causes.
Earlier this year we joined forces with Beaconsfield Round Table and High Wycombe Round Table to form a new bigger and better club called Chiltern Hundreds Round Table.
Watch out for more exciting news about this in 2021!
Round Table is a group of friends who enjoy socialising and getting involved in community and charity events such as the Santa Sleigh.
If you're looking to meet a new bunch of friends and are happy to try new things and help support the local community then Chiltern Hundreds Round Table could be just what you're looking for! We are always looking for new members, so if you're male and aged 18-45 years old then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via our Facebook page.
