People are being asked if they can you help find Father Christmas’ lost reindeer.

Father Christmas’ reindeer are lost across Breckland and he needs everyone’s help to find them by Christmas Eve. Helpers can do this by following the Breckland Reindeer Trail around the district’s five market towns.

The Breckland Reindeer Trail begins on November 27 and will see Father Christmas’ reindeer hiding in high street shops in Swaffham and other towns in the district.

Paul Claussen, executive member for economic development and growth at Breckland Council, said: "We’re encouraging everyone to get into the Christmas spirit and find out more about what our fantastic high streets have to offer.

"Our Reindeer Trail is a great reason to visit lots of the independent local businesses that give our towns their unique character and pick up some Christmas gifts.

"Every pound you spend in a local business goes into our local economy and supports local jobs. So why not support local businesses and have some festive fun at the same time."

A reindeer trail card will be required to write down the reindeer’s names and the business they were hiding in and these can be downloaded from the council’s website or picked up at businesses that are taking part.

To show how grateful he is for the help finding his missing reindeer, Father Christmas will be giving five lucky helpers a hamper of prizes from local shops.

The winners will be chosen at random from all the completed reindeer trail cards sent in before December 24.

Completed trail cards can be posted to: Father Christmas, Elizabeth House, Walpole Loke, Dereham, NR19 1EE, or a photo of the completed sheet can be emailed to reindeer@breckland.gov.uk.

The winners will be chosen and contacted in the new year.
