On Dec 1 & 2 families can board an elf-driven boat to visit Father Christmas at WWT Arundel Wetland Centre. Decorated boats will take families on a trip through the reedbeds to the rustic Holt building. After posting a letter to Father Christmas children can enjoy a visit with the man himself and receive a goody bag! Children can also take a ride on a gentle Shetland ponies and create a Christmas craft to take home.
Families flocking to Arundel Wetland Centre now will see wintering birds and wildfowl returning to the reserve from northern and eastern Europe.
