SANTA GETS STUCK IN REORGANISATION CHIMNEY

Before local government reorganisation, the local council in Port Talbot used to give Father Christmas the addresses of all primary schools in the area, but the new unitary authority which has replaced it just can't cope, reports the Western Mail (p1).

A Neath and Port Talbot CBC spokesman denied that the authority was behaving in a Scrooge like manner, saying that the new area covered by the authority is just too big to allow Santa to visit all its 70 primary schools.

'It's not the financial side of it that has forced us to stop the visits by Father Christmas. It's just that it is no longer practical.

'Plans are well in hand for Christmas parades in all three major towns in our area and I think local children will be happy with our arrangements,' said the spokesman.
