FATHER Christmas will be visiting the streets of Halewood to spread some Christmas cheer from next week.

For the past nine years Santa’s Christmas Crusade, made up of volunteers from Halewood Community Spirit, including Father Christmas and Melv the Elf; have visited every estate in Halewood, over a seven-night period.

And thanks to a donation from housebuilder Redrow, the group will be getting Father Christmas and his helpers ‘back on the road’ again this year.

Halewood Community Spirit applied for Redrow’s Halewood Community Fund earlier this year, requesting money to purchase a new generator.

Redrow launched the community fund after starting work on two new developments in the town – The Finches at Hilton Grange, off Lower Road, and Grace Fields at Hilton Grange, off Greensbridge Lane.

“Our project has over the years, and even more so in last two years, brought a much-needed boost to our community in the run up to Christmas,” said Vicky Williams, treasurer at Halewood Community Spirit.

“We drive slowly through as many roads as possible and stop to let the children speak to Father Christmas and take pictures. All our community, young and old look, forward to our annual visit. We wanted to say a huge thanks to Redrow for this funding.”

Sian Pitt, sales director at Redrow Lancashire, added: “Our funds are all about supporting the great work that is carried out by groups in our communities, and Halewood Community Spirit is a wonderful example of that.

“I hope this funding will now help the group to keep spreading festive cheer to Halewood for many years to come.”

This voluntary gift to the community is over and above the statutory investment from Redrow linked to the Halewood planning consents.

As well as new homes, the developments will include green open spaces and wildlife habitats, providing places for future homeowners to enjoy nature on their doorstep.

To support the growth of the neighbourhood Redrow has agreed to significant investment to improve local facilities, from healthcare and schools to highways, bus services and even equipment for the local leisure centre.
