SANTA’S POST BOXES

Rheged and Virgin Trains are again taking some of the pressure off Santa Claus this year, helping him sort some of the thousands of letters he receives by collecting them for him.

  • RHEGED CENTRE
    From Sunday 26th November children are invited to take their letters for Santa and post them in his special post box. Rheged will deliver your letter to Santa Claus himself - you’ll also receive a reply!
  • VIRGIN TRAIN STATION
    From Saturday 25th November children are invited to take their letters for Santa and post them in his special post box which has recently been delivered to the station. All the letters will be collected by Santa himself on Saturday 16th December, when he will catch the train at 13:03 to a secret location before he boards his sleigh back to the North Pole. Upon his return his elves will ensure all the
    letters are processed so everyone gets their presents in time for Christmas Day.
