BARRY Round Table has announced its annual Santa Sleigh routes will take place this year, but advise residents that things will be different this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The charity will stage 18 Santa Sleigh Routes around the town.

Barry Round Table vice chairman Dan Campbell said: "2020 has been a challenge and with Christmas events cancelled, we knew how important bringing the sleigh was going to be in spreading festive cheer across the town.

"To keep our members and the public safe, this year's sleigh will be continually rolling with no stops or photos with Santa.

"We won't be giving out sweets, but we'll still collect donations for local good causes - although we'd urge people to donate online via where possible."
