How the sleigh came about

 Oswestry Cambrian



Oswestry Cambrian are taking over the towns Father Christmas street collections that has been organised over the more recent years by the towns Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes.

We are very pleased to continue this tradition that raises money for the local organisations and charities supported by our Rotary Club.

More information will be posted here and in the local press.

Sadly, the trailer above we were due to take over from the Buffaloes was corroded beyond economical repair ………..

……….. So we are starting from scratch with a completely refurbished trailer - and here it is. Smaller, lighter and more manoeuvrable. Watch the progress here.
