Friends of Harpenden Academy are hosting a Jingle Bell alk in the town centre:

We will place scavenger hunt clues in shop windows in the centre of Harpenden. Each clue will lead you to the next clue. Clue maps will be emailed to all those who have registered. Parents must have paid in order to receive the map. Children will return completed maps to Santa’s Grotto in exchange for a gift from Santa and parents will be allowed to take a photo of their child with Santa (standing & maintaining social distancing).


  • All gifts will be pre-wrapped and distributed by Santa and his elves who will all be wearing gloves & face masks.

  • Gifts will be received at least 3 days prior to the event so that they may sit before being distributed.

  • We will use the pavement markings outside of HA to ensure that each family/child maintains the 2m social distancing and there will be a one-way system.

  • In order to minimise the crowds, there will only be 80 bookings per one hour time slot.

  • Santa will sit inside the grotto, child/family will walk to its entrance (2m away - there will be markings to ensure this). There will be no contact between Santa and the child.

  • There will be no onsite/walk-up payments allowed.

  • Sanitizer will be made available.

  • All parent volunteers will be wearing masks.

  • There will be a max of 6 children per registration

  • Event will be outdoors and we will ensure there will be no congregating outside.
