It's time to say Thank You

Christmas is a time to remember and to give thanks. As part of Tettenhall Remembers we come together to remember on our virtual Tree of Light those we love, those we have lost and those who we thank for helping us – NHS workers, neighbours, local trades people and the friends who have brought our community closer together.

In previous years the donations made by supporters of Tettenhall Remembers have helped to support the continuing work of Compton Care and Acorns Children’s Hospice.

Your donations this year will help us to continue to support the work of smaller local charities and other good causes many of who have been severely impacted by the Covid 19 pandemic.

We're asking you to take a moment to say thank you and to help to support the work of local good causes throughout the year by taking part in Tettenhall Remembers 2020 - visit www.give.net/TettenhallRemembers2020 to donate.

A Message from Santa

 Dear Children and Parents

Usually I meet many of you before Christmas when members of Tettenhall Rotary Club take me to supermarkets, lights switch on events and around the houses in Claregate, Fordhouses, Bushbury, Low Hill, Old Fallings and the Scotlands. Unfortunately, this year, because of the risk of illness, we are not allowed to do it.

Tettenhall Rotary Club Sleigh has been carrying me around for 17 years and when I have met children I have normally asked them what they would like for Christmas. But as I can’t do that this year, children must make sure that they tell Mummy or Daddy to let me know and I will do my best.  

In the past, many children have told me that all they want for Christmas is for their family to be happy, people to be nice and a cure be found for those who are poorly. I know that the doctors and nurses are working really hard at the moment to help those who are suffering.

So don’t forget, children, be good and ask a parent to let me know what you would like. At the same time please ask them to make a donation to Tettenhall Rotary Club at www.give.net/WolvesSanta so that they can help local charities and good causes. 

REMEMBER, WHEN YOU ARE ALL FAST ASLEEP ON CHRISTMAS NIGHT, I WILL VISIT YOUR HOME. YOU WILL NOT SEE ME BUT I WILL SEE YOU.

Happy Christmas to you all

Santa
