Apparently Rudolph failed the ‘lateral glow test’ so alternative transport was required for the visit of Santa and Mrs Claus to Raasay. The Christmas couple are pictured on their moped flanked by Raasay pupils on their bikes. All enjoyed Christmas poetry, jokes and songs out in the school grounds where they had a special Covid-safe grotto.
