Covid Tier 3 Announcement


27/11/2020 (6 months ago)   General News

Following the announcement earlier today, the Staffordshire Moorlands has been placed into Tier 3 Covid restrictions commencing on the 2nd December 2020. 

We will therefore be unable to operate our Santa Express service, or any other services over the festive period.

All our customers who are booked on any service in December 2020 or January 2021 will receive an email in the next 48 hours, detailing the options available.

We are beyond disappointed that having complied with all requirements from Government since we reopened on the 1st August 2020, and having been actively encouraged to continue ‘business as usual’ we are having to disappoint our many loyal customers at such late notice – especially at Christmas when many young children will have been looking forward to travelling on the Santa Express.

Rest assured we will be back in 2021, and we will have a selection of new and old events for our customers to enjoy and experience.
Our office remains open, however given the number of calls we are receiving it is likely to take some days to return all calls. If you are unable to deal with your booking through the automated process, please use the ‘Contact’ section of our website.

We wish all our customers as Merry Christmas as possible given the current pandemic and we hope for a better and prosperous 2021.
