TV star hops over to meet ‘namesake’

ACTOR Tony Robinson met a guinea pig called Baldrick, named after his much-loved character in the TV series Blackadder, during a visit to Crabbs Cross.

Hopper Haven and Littlefoot Sanctuary welcomed the celebrity, who also presents Channel 4’s Time Team, last week so he could meet volunteers and find out about the important work the refuge does in finding new homes for rescued guinea pigs and rabbits.

The sanctuary is always keen to hear from residents who could provide a home for one of the animals.
