Bertie is old and very wise.
Bertie Helps Santa
Bertie has just returned from assisting Santa with the trials of the new sleigh. They have to trial the new sleigh, because it's twice the size of the old sleigh. Santa still uses the small sleigh and Bertie is often called upon by Santa for his technical expertise in landing techniques. Bertie is also very good with computers and the internet and spends a lot of time sorting out the content for our website.
