Maybe the best weather for Christmas Day for quite a few years. Five of us headed for Pendle Hill as part of a plan to build up appetites and allow kitchen staff more time and space to prepare the annual feast.

Is it our imagination, or could that be Santa's Sleigh heading back to Lapland? Matthew & Libby have been led to believe that there will be a gift near the summit for well-behaved children that make it to the top on Christmas Day.

Just enough snow to make snowballs.
