If you’re looking for a simple way to get your neighbours together this Christmas, Streetbank Santa could be just the thing.
Streetbank Santa is a version of secret Santa but with no shopping involved.
Our top tip is to keep it simple – it’s a busy time of year and you don’t want to put too much on your plate (other than mince pies, of course).
Instead of buying new, Streetbank Santa is all about sharing pre-loved things with your neighbours – the DVD you enjoyed but won’t watch again, the book that made you laugh out loud on the bus, the toys your children have grown out of.
It’s dead easy and it could help change the feel of the street for the whole year. Malc and Claire in Old Trafford have already held their Streetbank Santa.
