Where are they now?

Remember those ‘few new creations‘ from back in November? Do you wonder what they’ve been doing since? One of our determined reporters tracked them down in Oakham, Rutland to find out what they’ve been up to lately: A New Adventure Upon meeting these fascinating characters, one expects them to be proud and condescending now that…

The Wooden Ones

Since my tiny community of Wooden people is quite popular (which is not surprising, they’re adorable) I thought I’d introduce a few of the key personalities.
