Harriet Rix all set for Blue Peter date
SCHOOLGIRL Harriet Rix will be the envy of her classmates next week when she appears on national television.
Harriet, a year four pupil at St Felix School, at Reydon, will be taking a starring role on Blue Peter's Christmas show.
She will provide young viewers with an insight into her life, living in Suffolk's answer to a festive wonderland.
Harriet's parents, Ian and Caroline, run Red House Barns at Sternfield, near Saxmundham, a farm where reindeer live, hundreds of Christmas trees are grown and sold and Santa Claus visits every weekend during December.
And on Monday's programme, nine-year-old Harriet will be showing how she helps out on the festive farm in a four-minute Being Me film.
