‘Elf’ storage for surprise Christmas presents

Barnstaple self storage company offers a new alternative to parents wanting to keep the magic of surprises at Christmas alive.

A BARNSTAPLE self storage company has come up with an idea to help parents keep their children’s presents a surprise this year.

Dainton Self Storage in Barnstaple is offering an ‘Elf Storage’ service with a secure unit for parents to store their presents for free until Christmas Eve.

The service will be on a first-come, first-served basis and Barnstaple branch manager Andy Walker hopes it will keep the magic of Christmas alive.

He said: “As a child, I can remember how my curiosity would get the better of me at Christmas and I couldn’t resist looking in the usual hiding places for any presents my parents had stored away.
