Bobby and Betty are based at Goldfield School. They can be booked out to accompany you on special journeys or holidays in the UK (and abroad). Both bears will have a Diary with them so that you can record their adventures with you. If you would like to e-mail any photographs to admin@goldfield.herts.sch.uk Mrs Rolph will add them to the World Map and Goldfield's Website.

If you would like to take Bobby or Betty away with you please contact Mrs Rolph with the date of your journey so that they can be booked out. Please return the bears with their Diaries as soon as you return as they may be booked out by someone else.

We look forward to hearing from you soon and seeing all of your exciting diary updates!

Betty had a wonderful time visiting Valencia. Her room was on the top floor of the hotel, the views were magnificent. During her stay Betty visited Valencia Football Stadium (where she sat in the manager's chair) and the Oceanografic Sea Centre. Live sharks swam over my head! It was lovely and sunny and I enjoyed relaxing on the sandy beach.
