Three real reindeer have visited Romford ahead of the festive season to the delight of families across the borough.

The Brewery Shopping Centre, Waterloo Road, laid down straw and erected a wooden fence to make the animals - native to the world’s coldest regions - feel at home last week.

Rubie Charalambous, centre manager at The Brewery, said: “Our young shoppers were thrilled by our new additions over the weekend.

“It was a great opportunity for children to meet real reindeer as well as take home some goodies from The Brewery.”

The Christmas Fairy was also on hand to make shoppers’ wishes come true throughout the day by giving out gifts to visitors.
