Rotary Club to help run special Christmas postal service from Drewton’s Farm Shop

Published: 17/11/2015

The Rotary Club of South Cave and Wolds has kindly agreed to work with Drewton’s Farm Shop to help deliver children’s letters to Father Christmas this December.

Father Christmas and his real reindeer will once again be visiting Drewton’s on the weekend of 12 and 13 December, but, in a new development, there will also be a special Post Box at the farm shop, where children can drop off their letters to Father Christmas from 1 December.

Anyone posting a letter is asked to include as much information as possible, including the child’s name, age, postal address and an indication of whether or not they’ve booked to see Father Christmas at Drewton’s Farm Shop. The Rotary Club will then collect the letters and ensure that they all reach Father Christmas safely. To thank the local Rotary Club for its help in organising this special postal service, Drewton’s Farm Shop is holding a raffle to support the work of the club’s chosen charities.

Katie Taylor, proprietor of Drewton’s Farm Shop, said: “We’re really grateful to the Rotary Club of South Cave and Wolds for enabling us to offer this very special postal service to local children wanting to send their letters to Father Christmas. We do hope that parents will bring their children along to make use of our post box from December 1 onwards. Who knows? They may even get a reply from Father Christmas himself!”


Between 10am and 4pm on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 December, children can enjoy some quality time with Father Christmas and his little helpers in Drewton’s Farm Shop’s enchanting Winter Wonderland, where they will also be able to make some magic reindeer food to take home with them. Priced at £10 per child or £16 for two children sharing, visits are on a strict five-minute booking system. Larger parties can be catered for upon request. Appointments can be made now – ask the staff on the tills in the Farm Shop or telephone 01430 425079. Please be aware that Drewton’s Farm Shop can’t take photographs due to privacy restrictions, so remember to bring your camera.
