No Santa Run at Willand Rovers this year
11:00am Saturday 21st December 2013 in News
THE annual Santa Run at Willand Rovers Football Club will not be taking place this year because of a refurbishment project at the club.
Rovers were lucky enough to secure funding from Viridor Environmental Company to start the massive refurbishment project in August this year.
Phase one has been completed - which involved the purchase of a new sports changing unit - and is now on site and being used regularly by all the Willand teams.
Mike Mitchell club chairman said: "It was a hard decision to make not to hold the event this year but we have to make sure that the safety of our visitors is put first. Phase two has started and there is a lot of building work going on in the Club to make the new toilet facilities.
“The Santa Run is a fantastic event we put on for the whole village and anyone outside to take part in and you can be rest assured it will be back for December 2014.”
