Reining in recycled remnants for Christmas

SANTAS of all shapes and sizes are dominating the Tamworth district landscape, ranging from the traditional to the slightly unusual.

This Santa, snapped by Leader photographer Geoff O’Neill, was driving his “reindeer” through a paddock on the Manilla Rd in all his homemade glory.

An upturned rubbish bin, bucket, plant pots, stick antlers and tubing combine to give the big man in red a real country flavour.

The Leader is keen to see any interesting interpretations of Christmas favourites, so if you see something eye-catching in your travels, either give us a ring and let us know where, or take a photo and send it to us at
