Lolly Runs Ready to Hit the Streets

Santa is ready to join with local fire fighters for the annual lolly run, as if they aren’t busy enough.

Singleton’s 1958 Bedford fire truck and its well-recognised siren will be once again on the beat after spending much of the year in repairs.  Work on the engine, gearbox and breaks now has it in tip top condition to complete its most important role in the vehicle’s year, transporting Santa and his bags of lollies across the town.

But it is all happening and both Singleton and Muswellbrook Fire Brigades thank the many local businesses that have supported the event and the list is a long one.

Singleton Lolly Run is supported by major sponsor Liddell Open Cut along with Pirtek HV, AGL Macquarie, Hunter Valley Operation, Natasha Grant, STAC Consulting, Peter Runn’s Real Estate, Complete Parts, Yancoal Mt Thorley Warkworth, Hunter prestige Homes, Retired Mine Workers in memory of Hallie Ernst, Bower’s Heavy Haulage, Bestic Law, Singleton Preschool, Singleton Lions, Quasar Electrical, Bloomfield Group, Kirby Excavations and Dry Hire, Promine, Smith’s Smash Repairs, Valley Blockout Blinds, GIO, Kidd Electrical, Adamthwaite Crash Repairs, Austindo, Kevin O’Brien Optometry and Singleton Radiators.

Meanwhile Muswellbrook thanks their sponsors: AGL, MACH Energy, CRJ Maintenance, Tutt Bryant, Brook Medical, Boyle Estate Agents, JTS Realty, DK Heavy Plant Services, Happy Tooth Muswellbrook, Cody’s heavy Repairs, Harvey Recruitment, Malabar, Comprint, Polly & Co and Muswellbrook RSL.


Singleton Lolly run in the township is from December 4 to December 8.

Muswellbrook is on December 5 from 4:30pm to 7:30pm, December 11 from 4:30pm to 8pm and December 13 from 4pm to 8pm.

Santa asks all children are supervised by an adult and that you stay on the footpath.

If you see the lights and sirens on and no one is walking beside the truck, they are responding to an emergency.
