York housebuilder calls upon Santa to ensure local children are on his list

The housebuilder behind a brand new community in York is taking action to ensure its homes are on Santa’s radar this Christmas.

Barratt Homes, which is bringing new homes to York at The Meadows development, has written to Mr Claus to make sure he stops by this festive season. The five-star housebuilder is keen to make sure that Santa is fully aware of the development and that the new community gets a visit.

Paul Hogan, Sales Director at Barratt Homes Yorkshire East, commented: “Having met many of the children who have moved to The Meadows we know for a fact they will be on Santa’s ‘nice’ list. We would like to reassure them and their parents that rigorous steps have been taken to notify Father Christmas about their new address.”

Santa will travel an estimated 510 million km on Christmas Eve, flying at around 10 million km per hour in order to make the 233 million stops on his list. His first stop is the Republic of Kiribati in the Pacific Ocean and, according to NORAD, which is running an online Santa tracker, he will make his way west around the world before arriving in the UK.

Paul added: “Santa has a packed schedule on December 24 and The Meadows is a brand-new community so we’re pulling out all the stops to make sure our homes are on his map. The development has really taken shape since he last flew over, with lots of new families living here, so Santa and his reindeer will have lots to see.”

Paul Hogan added that families can help encourage Santa to stop by leaving mince pies and sherry out before they head to bed on Christmas Eve.
