We Are Chelmsford Round Table!
Chelmsford Round Table, established in 1937, and offers a place for men from all walks of life to discover a world of new activities with like minded-individuals while helping to support their local community
Our key fundraising & community events include Admirals Park Fireworks, Santa Sleigh through the streets of Chelmsford & a Senior Citizens party.
We’ve now been doing the Santa Sleigh with Santa for over 40 years now – without the support of people in our community like yourself this milestone and continued success would not have been possible – thank you!
Introducing Santa's New Sleigh!
That’s right, after over 40 years of service we felt Santa needed a new sleigh! Our workshop of elves have been working tirelessly over the last year to get something ready for the big man himself. Making sure there is enough Christmas spirit packed in so he can make it to all the good boys and girls of Chelmsford and the surround areas.
We are super excited to take Santa round in his new sleigh and hope that you will appreciate the time, effort and love that went into building it.
We don’t want to spoil the surprise, so here is a little tease of what the sleigh will look like – look out for it outside your window, you won’t miss it.
The most important thing of all is to look out for our rondel – then you will know it is us!
A BIG THANK YOU goes to Ongar Park Woodwork for their amazing help and carpentry skills in making Santa’s new sleigh a reality. They were super helpful, understand exactly what Santa needed and delivered something even more amazing that us or Santa could have dreamt.
See details of the build here and find out more about their great work on their socials.

What will Santa be doing?
Santa meets with our elf team at the beginning of every route, with the aim of starting on time at the start point shown on the map, and over the 60-90 minutes that follows, works his way to the end of the route. Santa will be bringing his sleigh with him – you’ll know he is nearby due to the festive sounds of Christmas classics playing out of the sleigh’s entertainment system, along with the glow of the of the lights on the sleigh that glide him through the dark cold nights.
If you are lucky, Santa may even present you with a little treat and a quick chat to hear about all the good things you have done this year as well as check that he has the right gift on his list for you.
Santa works with a number of different organisations, so please check their page or social media out in case your home is on their routes. If you are not aware of any coverage and would like to suggest a new route, or just need to get in touch with us you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This festive event is organised and run by volunteers and we do this for the love of Christmas and the enjoyment it brings their community.
