Mucking In Christmas special

Sunday December 21st at 7pm:

Jim Mora presents a special Christmas Mucking In, joined by garden designer, Tony Murrell and the community of Palmerston North, they give a new Christmas garden to our very own Kiwi Santa.

For the past nine years, Reg Shaw has operated a free "Santa's Workshop" from the dilapidated garage of his Palmerston North home. 

The entire year preceding December 25th, Reg's home slowly fills with toys which he repairs, wraps and gives away to the local children along with more toys and lollies bought with his own money. 

Reg himself dresses up as Santa, and his daughter Vanessa and her fiancé, Stephen dress up as elves and for the twelve days leading up to Christmas they open up they garage and give presents to children who come from miles around.

The new garden is full of all things Christmas - lights, presents, music& If you want to feel the true spirit of Christmas, this episode of Mucking in is not to be missed.
