Santa’s post train is coming to town this year to collect children’s letters and deliver them to the North Pole.

The train will visit Sittingbourne, Faversham and Sheerness from next week to collect the letters at this year’s Christmas events.

Children can write their own letter or download a form from the council website to post to Santa. Local businesses displaying a Santa post train poster will also be handing out special printed paper for the letters.

The train will arrive at each location at 10am and stay until 4pm, visiting:

  • Sittingbourne High Street on Saturday 20 November
  • Faversham Market on Saturday 27 November
  • Beachfields Park in Sheerness on Saturday 4 December.

Cllr Monique Bonney, cabinet member for economy and property, said:

“Families can deliver their letters directly onto Santa’s post train this year taking them directly to the North Pole.

“The train will join the Sittingbourne Christmas light switch on event on Saturday 20 November, Christmas entertainment in Faversham Market on Saturday 27 November, and Christmas entertainment at Beachfields Park in Sheerness on Saturday 4 December.

“The Christmas events by the Sittingbourne Christmas Lights Event organisers, Faversham Town Council and Sheerness Town Council will offer lots of fun for all the family and we encourage residents to join in with their local festivities.

“We want to support our high streets this Christmas and encourage people to visit our local shops and businesses.

“We’ll be funding Christmas events and the Santa post train with the Government and European Union’s Welcome Back fund to support the reopening of our high streets after a difficult year.”
