Friday at the Snape Maltings a young boy went way out in the reeds to be the first greeting Daddy Christmas arriving on a sailing barge. When Santa came in sight we could see the boy's hat dashing about among the reeds and frantically waving hands. Very gratifying it meant so much to the youngster ... have a good one.
