IT may only be April but Formby Rotary has launched an appeal to replace their outdated Santa Float!
The Rotary Carol Wagon has been a familiar sight in Formby for many years, but it is now “no longer road worthy.”
A Formby Rotary spokesperson said: “The Carol Wagon is synonymous with Christmas in Formby. Without it, that magical experience of excited children listening for the music that heralds the approach of the Carol Wagon will be no more.
“Generations of Formby residents have grown up with the Carol Wagon as the highlight of the Christmas period. So Formby Rotary is calling on the generosity of the good folk and businesses of Formby to help us continue our Christmas tradition.
“If we are to continue we desperately need a suitable replacement vehicle. This could be through donations or sponsorship. The Rotary Carol Wagon is akin to Christmas pudd and turkey - without it Christmas would just not be the same!”
