Reindeer return to Garsons of Titchfield - Saturday November 24 to Saturday December 24
The countdown has begun to one of Garsons of Titchfield’s most popular annual events – the arrival of real reindeer.
Weeks of careful planning have gone into preparing for the special guests, from sending 'reindeer helpers' for training and familiarisation at the reindeer's home farm, where they are looked after by one of the country’s leading experts, to building a custom enclosure and cosy stables.
The reindeer helpers will be responsible for the animals' welfare throughout their stay at the family-run garden centre, including taking them for daily walks, ensuring they have plenty of the right food and making them comfortable.
While there is no charge to visit the reindeer at Garsons, this annual tradition raises thousands of pounds for Garsons charity of the year, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance’ with collection buckets for donations near the enclosure.
