A PAIR of reindeer are taking a break from pulling Santa’s sleigh to enjoy some time at Planters in Bretby.
Anna and Spotty have moved in to the garden centre for the festive season to offer visitors a Christmas treat ahead of the big day in just over three weeks’ time.
The pair were brought in from Sweden in a small herd of seven. The others have been given temporary homes at other centres run by the company.
It is the first time Planters have had live reindeer, and duty manager Lee O’Brian said they had already proved a huge hit.
“We’ve definitely seen more families arrive this year and the feedback has been so positive we’re sure this will become an annual part of our celebrations.”
