Each year HCR104fm asks local primary schools if their Year 1 children would like to ask Father Christmas questions. The children record their own questions and on the closest working day to Christmas day, these are given to Santa to answer. This year was no exception and after a false start where one school was unable to provide questions, St Anne’s Primary school in Godmanchester stepped in at the last minute and came up trumps. 12 of their youngsters made recordings for Santa. These were taken back to the studio and made ready for the visit of the Man in Red.
Paul Chapman, the host of our “Over to You” Christmas Special programme which was broadcast on Friday 22nd December prepared himself for a grand entrance from Santa and we found space on our roof for sleigh parking. But right at the last moment there were problems with Santa’s sleigh which he simply had to deal with before Christmas Eve, so he sent his wife, Mrs Christmas along to substitute for him.
The Christmas Special went ahead and turned into a really magical show.
