Buckinghamshire homebuilders ensure that children are on Santa’s nice list after being cleared to fly

Santa Stop Here, a typical David Wilson Home

Santa Claus is set to travel after a negative PCR test and Barratt and David Wilson Homes are taking action to ensure their Buckinghamshire developments are on his radar.

The leading developers are building properties in the county, and have written to Mr Claus to make sure he stops by for a mince pie this festive season to ensure children who have moved to a new house are still on his list.

Due to the pandemic, Father Christmas has made sure his COVID passport is readily available. Santa, Mrs Claus and the elves have been in their own bubble and recently had their booster to ensure they’re keeping people safe.

The five star housebuilders are now keen to make sure that Santa is fully aware of the new developments and that the communities get a visit.

John Dillon, Managing Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “It’s fantastic news that Santa Claus has been cleared to deliver presents around the world once more.

“Having met many of the children who have moved to our new developments, we know for a fact that they will be on Santa’s ‘nice’ list.

“We would like to reassure them and their parents that rigorous steps have been taken to notify Father Christmas about their new address.”

Santa will travel an estimated 510 million km on Christmas Eve, flying at around 10 million km per hour in order to make the 233 million stops on his list. Due to the speed at which the sleigh travels, Father Christmas will be at each household for a matter of minutes to drop off his sanitised gifts for youngsters.

His first stop is the Republic of Kiribati in the Pacific Ocean and, according to NORAD, which is running an online Santa tracker, he will make his way west around the world before arriving in the UK.

John added: “Santa has a packed schedule on December 24th and we’re pulling out all the stops to make sure our brand new homes are on his map. The developments have taken shape since he last flew over, with lots of new families living there, so Santa and his reindeer will have lots to see.”
