MORE BREAKING NEWS…

Rudolph has contracted the cervine strain of the terrifying man flu and may be unable to fulfil his duties this Christmas.  Luckily, Dundas Castle has stepped in to ensure that children across the world will still get their well earned presents this year.

Her wish was to be a Princess for the day and to dance with a Prince.
