REINDEER RETURN: You know Christmas is just around the corner when reindeer are among the visitors to a school.

On Friday (December 7) the Roundhouse School warmly welcomed Bubble and Squeak as they stopped off to spread some Christmas cheer around Love's Farm.

The pair was accompanied by a friendly barn owl who made sure he didn't miss out on all the fun.

The reindeers were gifted to the school by construction company Willmott Dixon, which is currently building the school extension.

Staff from the company not only funded the treat but were happy to chaperone their Nordic friends into the school hall.

Acting head teacher, Tamara Allen, told The Hunts Post: "The children, parents and staff had a fantastic time at the fair.

"The reindeers seemed to be enjoying the Christmas fun and made it a really special occasion.

"We're extremely grateful to Willmott Dixon for their support."
