With the arrival of the photographs, Isobel can now organise the official press launch of the new Toys - which has been arranged for Monday 7th December. It's going to be an Open House sort of affair, rather than a formal Press Conference - for a variety of reasons. Thanks to Ms Claire Lilley, the Proprietor of "The Artful Buttoner" (where lots of Cuddlies are already on display), we've been allocated her lecture area (she holds teaching sessions for crafters, "knit and natter" sessions for others and so on) between 1400-1600 on that day. While the area is a lot bigger than our home, it's not THAT big, and Isobel feels it will be much more informal and welcoming to do it this way. The lighting there is much better too - so we hope it will be better for visitors to take pictures for themselves.
The plan is to invite local TV and print folk to come along, see the new Hedgehogs and how we plan to use them to help save the Hedgehogs in the UK (with the ten per cent of sales of every single Coldham Hedgehog - as well as the Family - being shared between St Tiggywinkles Hedgehog Hospital and West Midlands Hedgehog Rescue) and how we'd like to lend our support to the campaign to have The Hedgehog become the National UK Animal. So, she's going to be busy again this week, isn't she!
Meanwhile, the first of our 2015 Hedgehog Families are on their way to Mobile, Alabama, U.S.A . This is the picture of them sitting on Isobel's pillow prior to being parcelled up on Wednesday of this last week.
Naturally, as is the custom in the COLDHAMCUDDLIES world, as Mascot to the enterprise, I was present to supervise the occasion.
|Trying to reassure the family|
|and, hopefully, succeeding.|
Until next week then. Have a good one Everyone.
Your friend, Cy Bear.
