Santas on horseback make Wainfleet residents smile

Reindeer were rather busy elsewhere when a group of horse riding friends went around Wainfleet on Christmas Eve dressed as Santas.

The horses were also decorated and lit up as part of the festive procession.

Katie Merrett who took part, said: "We came up with the idea a month ago and also wanted to visit Wainfleet's care home to cheer up the residents.

"Little did we know that it would snowball and possibly will become an annual event.

"It was very well supported and can we thank Tesco, Joanne Thorpe and Wainfleet Co- Op for their contributions ."
