Santa came down our street on Sunday night in his sleigh collecting for the children's gala next summer............ with a host of burly minders and a police van for company! When I asked a policewoman mounted on a quad bike why, she replied, " He sometimes gets egged"!!!!! Presumably some of the local Ned's must nick eggs (they certainly wont buy them) and indulge in a bit of target practice at the rather portly man in red!
Is this peculiar to our neck of the woods? I'd like to know. (At least the police weren't armed) (I think !!)
