Santa’s Message for Blyth Residents

Santa’s Tour 2020

Santa’s Blessing


Reverend Catherine Macpherson of St Mary’s Church gave Santa and Blyth town a blessing ahead of the sleigh ride tour.

Thank You Blyth

After a very challenging year for all of us, Santa Claus and his elves would like to thank the people of Blyth for the fantastic reception and huge welcome he has received throughout our town. Santa’s sleigh parade began on Monday 30 November for 4 nights and thousands of you joined us at your doorsteps and streets to wave at Santa and experience the magic with us. Santa has paraded through the streets and seen lots of good little boys and girls who are sure to receive a visit on Christmas Eve night.

We have had care home residents dancing at their windows right through to little children asking Santa for the simple wish of “sunshine” for Christmas.

Blyth Town Council are incredibly proud of our town for allowing us to deliver this spectacular event whilst adhering to social distancing guidelines and keeping each other safe. This event has been more than we had ever hoped for and we are so thrilled that it brought a smile to so many. Remember, you are never too old for Santa Claus.

Merry Christmas from all of us at Blyth Town Council.

Thank you, Blyth.
