A message from Dixie


Hello, hello! It’s lovely to see you! Welcome to our place – have a look around while I put the kettle on…

(are there any of those fancy chocolate biscuits left, Percy?)

You can find out all about us, my best pal Percy and me. My arch enemy Lou Ella is here too (worst luck). And you can see my wonderful car! Do hop in and we’ll go for a drive.

I know we are going to get along brilliantly,
so fasten your seat belt for many thrilling adventures…
