During Tilbury’s Christmas Lights and Fayre last Friday, YourThurrock was delighted to interview the one and only FATHER CHRISTMAS!! In fact, no amount of cap-locks or exclamation marks can explain how excited I was when I discovered Father Christmas had kindly agreed to talk to us before he flew off back home to continue work at his Christmas Workshop!
Whilst the elves and reindeers scuttled about outside packing up the sleigh, we were invited into the rather beautiful glittering grotto to discuss all things Christmassy.
Father Christmas was incredibly happy with all of the children and exclusive revealed that no child in Thurrock would be getting coal this year! YourThurrock can also reveal that Father Christmas fancies a pork pie rather than a mince pie this year, and his reindeers would like a parsnip rather than a carrot. So remember to keep that in mind when you are doing your Christmas shopping!
Merry Christmas everyone!
