The Butchers Arms, Crosby Ravensworth 24/12/11
You never know who will be dropping in to The Butchers Arms. Earlier this year we welcomed our Prime Minister, David Cameron, this Christmas there was another VIP on everybody’s minds. Santa Claus!
There were good flying conditions on Christmas Eve in the Lyvennet Valley. Santa Claus touched down near the Village Hall and pulled up, to the great delight of all gathered, in front of our community pub in his traditional one-horse open sleigh. There was a rapturous chorus of Jingle Bells to greet him and with a hearty “Ho-ho-ho” and a merry wave he swept a bulging sack of gifts over his shoulder and went inside to find out who had been naughty and nice.
The pub was packed! Children’s party food was laid out and Santa conversed and sang with the children. They had all been good this year and he’d clearly read their letters to him because he knew exactly what everyone had asked for. Everyone had a great time.
