Santa Moving With The Times!

High Speed Santa!

Father Christmas will leave his reindeers in Lapland and take to a Segway to pay a call on Sherwood Pines Forest Park!

Roving Santa will rev-up on his dream machine to help deliver more fresh Christmas trees to the beauty spot’s popular Forestry Commission sales point, near Clipstone, Notts.

Segways – invented in the USA and described as self-balancing two wheeled electric transportation machines – have been touted as the future of green commuting.

In spring they will make their debut in the 1,200 hectare (3,000 acre) forest park when Go-Ape offers them for hire to visitors for woodland safaris. Chris Bray, Forestry Commission Recreation Manager, said:

“The Go-Ape guys wanted to get in a bit of practice so kindly offered to help us move Christmas trees around the sales area, getting into the mood by dressing as Santa. Segways are a brilliant way of exploring the forest and this will be a terrific new attraction next year.”

Christmas tree sales run daily in Sherwood Pines until 23 December from 9am to 3.30pm.

Thousands of pines, fir and spruce are up for grabs, but an on-going national shortage of Christmas trees means revellers are being urged to buy early to get the best of the crop.
