Father Christmas at Old Buckenham Mill

Windmill has special visitor
Small children, accompanied  by their parents or grandparents, could be seen walking along Mill Road today and going into Old Buckenham Mill. The ground floor was all decorated and full of activities for children to do. There were also mince pies to eat and, for the grown ups, mulled wine to drink.

But the main attraction was up on the first floor. By climbing a steep wooden ladder you could get to Santa's grotto. When Father Christmas arrived at the Mill (by Post Office van of course as the reindeer are resting for their long journeys later this month) he climbed the ladder, not that easy for a rather portly gentleman of indeterminate age, and settled down to meet his visitors.
Appointments had been made and, at their scheduled time, the children too climbed up to have discussions on how good they had been and what might be on their Christmas wish list. Surprisingly Father Christmas had a small present for all of them in his sack so they all came back to the ground floor clutching their parcels.
