Santa a special visitor to woods

Festive visitors dropped into Holt Country park during the lead up to Christmas.

Santa and two reindeer, Comet and Dancer, along with his elves, greeted more than 200 children and adults during a special event organised by North Norfolk District Council.

As well as meeting the special visitors children also followed a wildlife trail and made a card to give to Santa's elves, advising them how to help look after wildlife through the winter.

After they had said hello to Comet and Dancer, Santa gave all the children a present.

Ranger Annie Katnoria said: 'It was a perfect day in idyllic conditions, with Santa and his reindeer walking through the snow at Holt Country Park.'

Santa and his team also visited Bacton Wood near North Walsham a few days earlier.
