Ted has been our official mascot and office News Hound for one year. He is a 5 year old Cavachon and puts his name to an occasional column naming and shaming several people who in his mind are ‘up to no good’ or in need of a gentle poking of fun. Watch out when Ted is about, his dry wit will catch you out. Some local politicians, almost feel left out if they do not make it into his column.
