Christmas SUP paddle

There was much hilarity on the canal on Sunday with walkers stopping to smile and take pictures. So what was this all about? Well….

Santa’s reindeer have been very busy delivering Santa and his presents to his canalside grotto. So they needed a much deserved day off. We contacted TJ Boardhire and problem solved. They and their paddleboarding friends dressed up for the occasion and provided replacement transport for Santa. And a great time was had by all.

Paddling against the wind to the Basin meant that they were ready for some refreshment. The cafe volunteers didn’t disappoint, serving up mince pies and mulled wine.

Gemma at TJ Boardhire said “We were happy to be Santa’s little helpers and had a really enjoyable day. We hope that the children on the Richmond boat trip and passers by enjoyed this as much as we did”.

Note from editor: normal reindeer service is now resumed!
