Inspiring Business by Sharing Success


The housebuilders behind brand new communities in Leicestershire are taking action to ensure their homes are on Santa’s radar this Christmas.

Barratt Homes North Midlands and David Wilson Homes East Midlands, which are bringing new homes to the area at their various developments, have written to Mr Claus to make sure he stops by at the new homes this festive season.

The five-star housebuilders are keen to make sure that Santa is fully aware of the developments and that the new communities get a visit.

Jan Ruston, Sales Director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “Having met many of the children who have moved to our new development, 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.”

Jason Hearn, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said: “Santa has a packed schedule on Christmas Eve and we’re pulling out all the stops to make sure our brand new homes are on his map. The developments have taken shape since he last flew over, with lots of new families living there, so Santa and his reindeer will have lots to see.”

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.

Families can help encourage Santa to stop by leaving mince pies and sherry out before they head to bed on Christmas Eve.
