Hello everyone! We are Ian & Betty Pointer, based in Newbury, Berkshire. Some of you we may have met at Sally & Gruff's blessing in July at Penny's Farm. We live with a torti cat named Poppy, and 4 pekin bantams - the cockerel was hand reared by Jon & Angela (downsizers members Somewhere by the river) and consequently thinks he is human - certainly not a chicken. I am the gardener in the family and Ian is your man if you think your house might be about to fall down (although past retirement age, he still works - civil & structural).

Hello!

We were there with two small, active children. It was lovely to meet you!

Hello Mum!!

What can we say about the cockerel Peepa... sorry, but he was cute when little, imprinted on a human hand - no wonder he's confused! And we love him anyway, not least as he likes nothing more than a cuddle - don't we all!
