No Santa’s Post Box at Babbacombe Cliff Railway for 2012

 Santa’s elves were hoping to be back at Babbacombe Cliff Railway with Santa’s Post Box this year for the first two weekends in December, as usual. Unfortunately however, they will be unable to run their special Santa’s Post Box event this year.

John Ayres, Chairman of the Cliff Railway Community Interest Company says, “There is some essential maintenance work that has to take place and this is the only time that we are able to do it. So, unfortunately, we have had to take the decision to cancel our Santa’s Post Box event for this year.”

John added “It is a shame not to have this event which always proves incredibly popular and brings visitors to the railway at a time when they probably wouldn’t visit us otherwise. However, the engineering works do have to take priority on this occasion. We have told Santa who has written to all the children who visited the elves last year so that they know all about it. We’ve also given them each a free ticket to come back and have a ride on the railway when we’re open again in February 2013.”

John is keen for people to spread the word about the cancelled event and asks that if people know of any families that were hoping to ride the railway and visit the elves this year, they let them know that the event won’t be happening.

Santa’s Post Box at Babbacombe Cliff Railway

After the success of the 2010 Christmas event, the Friends of Babbacombe Cliff Railway are delighted to announce that Santa’s Post Box will be open for business at Babbacombe Cliff Railway on Saturday 10 December & Sunday 11 December and Saturday 17 December & Sunday 18 December from 10am to 3pm.

Price per child is just £3.50 to include a return trip on the Cliff Railway, a little gift from Santa and letter-writing bits and bobs to send that special note to Santa.

The Cliff Railway is beautifully decorated for Christmas with a very special polar bear at the station waiting to say hello.

So why not bring your child along for a fun, festive outing this Christmas? With a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie for Mums, Dads, Grandmas, Grandads, Aunts and Uncles (usual adult return price of £1.80 applies), bring the whole family.
