On Wednesday 23rd December, the Crew will be meeting at the Hillsborough Shops going through Tithe Farm Road to Bedford Square and then back via Sundon Road.

Santa will be pushing his big loud music trolley, blasting out carols and Chrimbo music!

Please, do come along and sing and dance with us as we make our way around our hometown. If you want to bring some small sweet treats for the kids please do so.

Ian Laken wrote on his Facebook Page, "It's mostly a fun idea for the grown ups to get dressed up and walk the estate singing carols and handing out sweets to the kids. Everyone is welcome to join in so just come along with or without the kids and be ready to sing out loud to the Community. I'll be be Santa pushing a make shift musical sleigh so please do bring some sweets or other goodies to go in the cart for everyone to share."

Happy Christmas, Houghton Regis!
