Reindeer here in Wellingborough
Reindeers are visiting Wellingborough thanks to Wellingborough Town Council and the Welcome back fund.
Santa’s Reindeer will be making a stop to rest in the Town Centre on Saturday 11th December 2021 from 08:30 – 15:00.
Did you know that Reindeer antlers are made of solid bone, and have a living velvet covered skin whilst growing up to 2cm a day and when reindeer walk you will hear a clicking sound, these are the tendons in the feet joints. The clicking helps herds stay together in low visibility. Reindeer have large feet with two toes and two dew claws, which help spread the body weight and provide grip in the snow and icy conditions.
Come along and see for yourself.
