Introducing the Official Mascot - Cy Bear

Hello Everyone!  I'm the latest member of the Coldham Cuddlies family and am told that I am an "experiment" (?)  Apparently, I am made from the remains of an old Beaver Lamb Fur Coat which belonged to an elderly neighbour here in the Hospital of St. John.  Now the Hospital has been in existence since 1472 - which is old - but the lady who gave Isobel the fur (it was going on the dump, otherwise) is "in her eighties", so I am older than the rest of the Cuddlies.  (You can see them if you visit  Apparently, the top seams on my arms and legs are not "safe" or child-friendly, so instead of being ready to be adopted my future lies here with Isobel, her husband Peter - who does not enjoy good health, but does as much as he can.   I have been appointed as the Coldham Cuddlies mascot.  Not sure what that entails, but am looking forward to finding out - and telling you ALL about it.

Meanwhile  -  here is a picture of me - among the flowers in the Hospital's garden.  See you soon.  Have fun this week-end, wherever and whatever you are doing  Cy Bear
