Santa fun arrives on fire truck
Delight at Biloela library
THERE was excitement and thrills for children when Santa Claus made a visit to the Biloela library this week.
He arrived with a difference – not on a sleigh led by Rudolph but rather by a Thangool Rural Fire Service truck with sirens and lights announcing his arrival.
Santa stopped by to say hello to the children during a Storytime program.
There were keen-eyed youngsters who all looked forward to reminding Santa what they wanted for Christmas.
One youngster happy to see Santa was seven-yearold Brock Thorpe.
“It’s great to see Santa and I like to read books all the time,” Brock said.
Brock said he was looking forward to going away for a Christmas holiday this festive season.
Storytime is run in the Biloela library every Wednesday at 10am during school terms and is an early literacy initiative focused on incorporating the ‘First 5 Forever’ principles.
The program will recommence on January 30, 10am.
