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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
