Here is what the bears have been up to so far…


When Divoc made his first appearance on 13th April, he didn’t have his name yet. He paid tribute to all the hard working Key Workers.

“Who needs Elf on the Shelf when you have Bear with a Care”.

The next day, the poor bear was worn out from his shift!

On the 15th April, Bear took a more relaxed approach…

Kath’s children had an art project to do for school work; they made a pond so the bear could go fishing.

On the 17th April, bear took the dogs for their daily exercise.

Who doesn’t love a bit of gardening? 

On the 19th April, Bear tried his hand at baking – wonder who was brave enough to try that pancake! 

A motivational message to all of Staffordshire University’s hard working Law students – keep guying guys! 

The 21st April was someone’s special birthday – HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUNTIE KERRY!

It’s about time the bear had a name. On the same day, the family created boxes for people to post name suggestions, as well as posting on Facebook.

It was time for the big name reveal! Kath’s children chose the names: Divoc (wonder what inspired this name) and Margie.

Some important second date prep… Looking marvelous Margie.
