I read on social media last week that there would be the opportunity of meeting some real reindeer this week at the Ice Arena.
So I popped down in my lunch hour to take a look and to take some photos.
There were three in total, but sadly they didn't come from Lapland, but Peterborough. The Woodbine Rare Breeds Farm actually, and were being looked after by a non-elfish elf.
They seemed quite happy to walk around the penned area in Bolero Square, eating, or scratching at the straw. One had even fallen asleep.
There was an entrance fee of a small donation to raise money for a local charity called Framework that looks after the homeless. So it was all in a good cause.
