The wrong time of the year.

With this being the run up to the Santa services I was reminded of a visitor to Orton Mere Station some years ago.

She asked if we had thought of running the Santa services in the summer when the weather was warmer and often sunny as it would encourage more people to book! She then added the following gem. When I lived in Australia we had Santa in the summer and events were very popular!

No, she was not blond and actually looked quite sensible as well! It was one the very rare times when I was truly lost for words!
