Billingshurst & District Lions Club (Nov 2023)

Look Out For Santa


Christmas comes but once a year,

time for Billingshurst Lions to bring yule-tide cheer;

time for Santa to dust off his hat and cloak

and practice ‘Yo Ho Ho’s’ for the local folk.


Once Santa had a cumbersome sleigh,

but sadly it collapsed and had had its day.

Now, for the modern era, in it’s stead,

Santa has a magnificent “Flying Bedstead”.


Every year it journeys from afar

sitting proudly on the roof of a car;

able to navigate down narrow lanes

with its twinkling lights and seasonal refrains,


maintaining the Lion’s much cherished tradition,

but, with music of a more popular rendition.

As Santa arrives in different places,

just look at the wonder on children’s faces.


Mums and Dads appear with fond nostalgia

seeing their kids enjoying a former childhood pleasure.

As for Billingshurst Lions, it makes their day

to hear so many people say,

   “Christmas doesn’t begin - 

                    - till the Lions Santa’s been down our way!”


From Friday 1st December till Saturday 16th December, Santa will again be visiting:-

Billingshurst, Slinfold, Loxwood, Barns Green, Wisborough Green and Rudgwick
