We received a letter yesterday telling us of the poor state of Bert's hobnail boots. He had holes all over them and after all the rain at the weekend, his feet were soaked!
We did an investigation to find out what would be the best material to try and seal the holes. We found that plastic was the best at waterproofing. However, some of us thought that the fabric and cotton wool would be good to keep his toes warm this winter. We sent a letter to Lord Westway explaining what we had found and also included a supply of our 21st century materials too.
