"My family and I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in the Santa by Steam trip on Saturday at 10am. It was the first time our grandchildren had been old enough to go and they were so excited by the whole experience. It was such a delightful trip with everyone working so hard to make sure we all enjoyed ourselves so I would be really grateful if you could pass on our thanks to all who made the day so special. We had a lovely meal in the cafe after so it was a perfect morning."

"Just a note to say how much all three generations of us enjoyed our trip on the Santa Train yesterday. It was all so well organised by your friendly volunteers and we had a really great trip."
