Come and meet Santa’s REAL Reindeer at Wynyard Hall! Stroke and feed* the beautiful Reindeer, who we are looking after until Christmas Eve…

Before the build up to Christmas, Santa decided to head over to Wynyard Hall for Festive Afternoon Tea. But whilst he was visiting, disaster struck! Naughty Elf “Wynnie”, who was supposed to be looking after Santa’s sleigh, thought it would be funny to let the reindeer loose on the lawn outside of the Hall. But she lost control of them and not wanting to be caught, ran off into the Woodland.

Thankfully, Head Gardener Mark, was on hand to herd the Reindeer into a pen! But Santa can’t leave Wynnie behind, so until we manage to find her, Santa and his Reindeer are staying at Wynyard Hall.

In the days leading up to Christmas, Santa is going to bring in his team of “Head Elves” to help find Wynnie. We need all the help we can get, so would like to invite everyone to come help us!
