Ho Ho Helsby 2020

It is with a heavy heart that the volunteers at Ho Ho Helsby Working Group announce that the annual event will not take place this year for the first time since its inception in 2016.

In light of ongoing current health concerns, travel and social distance restrictions and ongoing uncertainty, and considering the size and scale of this event, we just couldn’t find a way to do that without compromising the experiences that make Ho Ho Helsby so special. 

We know how disappointing this news will be for the hundreds of people we usually welcome each year but safety is paramount, and all being well, we will bring Ho Ho Helsby back next year.

Christmas is not cancelled though, and we hope that the residents and businesses will join together in lighting up the village with the theme ‘Twinkle Twinkle Ho Ho Helsby’. We have a number of ideas for us all to combine our efforts and bring light and cheer to Helsby for the whole of December.
Watch out for updates!

Details of our Christmas Card competition are on this website.

Stay safe and well, all of you Ho Ho supporters. Santa is watching, so be good, stay at home, protect the NHS, save lives.
