Skate with Santa

It turns out Santa really likes Barrhead. For at least the fifth time in the last three weeks Santa Claus was spotted in Barrhead, this time it was the Agrena on Sunday, Dec. 19. Besides a free evening of skating attendees got a surprise gift box and a chance to talk to Santa. Pictured: Kate Fitzpatrick with Santa.
