Santa’s little helpers at Buckingham Table and Buckingham Rotary are getting ready for this year’s Santa rota.

Santa will begin his festive rounds at Buckingham town centre Christmas lights switch-on on November 30, before heading off on a tour of the villages. Last year the float raised £2,784.89, shared between local charities.

Buckingham Table member Kevan Ramanuckis said: “We know that times are still tough and money is tight but, if the good people of Buckingham and the surrounding villages give as generously as they did last year then we can aim for another record year.”

There is one person who has earned themselves a place on Santa’s naughty list – a thief tried to break into the float while it was stored away for the year. Helpers discovered the attempted theft and resulting broken window when collecting the float to prepare it for this year’s rota.
