Welcome to news from the official Fenstanton community website

Yes it's true!

A former resident of Fenstanton has generously paid for 6 reindeer and sleigh to travel from Scotland and arrive in the village on the afternoon of 12th November 2006. They will parade through the parish with Santa Claus onboard to provide an early Christmas surprise for all the children and residents and help generate awareness of the Pre-school and hopefully assist in fund-raising.

John CARTER, who for many years was Chairman of the Parish Council, and his wife Marie retired to Scotland 3 years ago. Marie Carter died recently and her husband decided to commemorate her birthday by arranging for reindeer to appear for the benefit of the children in their former village. Reindeer were a special part of Marie's life and she also sponsored one in Scotland.

They will depart from Clock Tower Green at 1:30pm on Sunday November 12th, 2006 and arrive at the Headlands Play Area at 2:30pm approx.

For full details of the route please to download the map.
