At   this   time   of   year   the   Elves   are   extremely   busy   wrapping   presents   for   the children   of   Bere   Regis   and   surrounding   areas.   Once   in   a   while   the   Elves   need to take a break from their important work. In   the   early   hours   of   Friday   23rd   December   the   night   shift   was   in   full   swing, when   a   bit   of   a   commotion   began.   Curiosity   got   the   better   of   me   and   I   had   to take a look. This is what I found…
