Re: Pa Snip Enterprise: A Tenuous Link

A good trip out, staff and volunteers at railway made it a very enjoyable trip. We were also impressed by the quality of the gifts Santa was giving out,they had taken the trouble to ensure gifts not only suited each childs age but also gender. 10/10 to The Watercress Line That's sexist !!!! :wink:
