Santa Special Messages 
Here's just a couple examples of the messages we are getting about the Santa Specials: 

We had an amazing morning out on The Santa Special. My two little girls had great fun! We love the trains and the chance to admire the beautiful countryside that we live in but to do it whilst singing carols, hearing Christmas jokes and meeting Santa was just fabulous. The mince pies were the best I've ever had, the highlight for me was the team of volunteers who welcomed us, entertained us, gave us refreshments, cracked jokes, made a special effort with the children and beamed with happiness the entire time- it was infectious!! You are all truly fantastic people! Thank you. X

Truly magical day today! The Santa Steam Train was lovely, all the staff were so friendly and talkative it made the day complete. We thought Santa was great, he really engaged with the children and the gifts were the best they've had from any grotto. The complimentary mince pies/biscuits and hot/cold drinks were a nice touch..... Maybe add hot chocolate next year too;  
Well Done all Volunteers and supporters -  have a very Merry Christmas
