Hazelbrook RFS Santa Run


Ho Ho Ho Hazelbrook – I’ve missed you, and I can’t wait until Christmas Eve so the jolly folk at Hazelbrook Rural Fire Brigade are shining up their big red trucks and helping me to plan an extra special visit just to see you all.

If you live on the South side of the Highway then keep Friday evening on 15th December free because I’ll be heading your way from 5:30pm and I don’t want to miss you.

If you live on the North side of the Highway it will be your turn on Saturday 16th December.

Please be patient because there are so many houses to visit that day. Even though we will be on the road at 9am we probably won’t have visited everyone until dinner time.

I’m off to polish my boots and shine my belt buckle now, but I’ll see you really soon. Love, Santa xxx
