So I have been working with the police and they have said you must be socially distanced and you must stay in your group bubbles of max of six. 

“If you would like to line the street with a Santa hat or a light at 2.45pm on Friday the 11th December, the car will leave All Saints Church on the green (Croxley green) and travel across the green and down Baldwins lane x The family thank you all for your support through these difficult times.”
