As a big thank you we have vowed to clad him in wool to replace a much loved predecessor whose arms have been replaced once too often!
He popped in recently for a fitting and as you can see we need our knit groups to knit a row or two a night to help complete the task.
Come on girls, Rupert's warmth this winter depends on us.
Anyone passing can pop in and do a row too... a good opportunity to test out the luxury chunky tweed it is made from.
Keep checking the site for updates and the big unveil, or should we say the big cover up...
