The Story

Fred is the embodiment of English village life. Having served king and country he settled down to the quiet life, tending his allotment and pottering about in the shed. This tranquil scene is often disturbed by the attentions of Monty, Fred's faithful cat. Occasionally Monty disappears, as is the way of all cats, only to re-appear and act out topical events from flower shows to The Olympics. As you will see from the drawings, Fred doesn't seem to move around much, preferring the world to come to him. As Fred himself would say "Thats economy of effort that is". He speaks with an Isle of Wight accent, akin to a West Country drawl and finishes his sentences with "Cheero' Nip" which translates to " Good bye and look after yourelf young fellow".
