THE Father Christmas grotto at Sharnfold Farm is proving a big hit.

But it has posted online today: “We would like to apologise to our customers that attended this event on Saturday. Unfortunately our Santa became over excited when meeting the children and spent so much time talking about their Christmas presents and how good they’ve been all year that the time got the better of him and people had to wait longer than they should.

“Santa has calmed down now and all is back to normal.”
