Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

While to­tal vis­i­tor num­bers are un­known, or­gan­is­ers are cer­tain the event on Satur­day (Novem­ber 28) was a suc­cess judg­ing by the amount of mince pies sold.

Kath­leen Martin said: “It was a bit wet but not too bad. Still, peo­ple turned up which was ter­rific.

“I know we got rid of a couple of hun­dred mince pies plus – even more than that, in fact.”

De­spite the poor weather she said the event was good: “Apart from sliding around on mud it was good fun, it al­ways is. We’re al­ways pleased to see so many peo­ple. Peo­ple were so good at com­ing along to see Santa, who looked splen­did. I’ve heard good vibes back from ev­ery­body about how much they did enjoy it, young and old.”

She added: “No­body was put off by the rain which was good.”

Peo­ple en­joyed burg­ers, mulled drinks and a merry go round, as the young guides helped the or­gan­is­ers by be­ing San­tas Lit­tle Helpers.
