LETTER: Thanks to Father Christmas on horseback

May I use your columns to thank the gentleman who took the trouble to put on a Father Christmas robe and ride his splendid horse through Barrowford on Christmas Day morning.

My wife and I were on our way to Barnoldswick to visit her 94-year-old mother, at about 10-15 a.m., and it quite made our day, as I’m sure it did many other people’s.

What a wonderful gesture - thank you, sir.
