Kitty Gilthorpe never troubled about the weather, she walked her dog, Rolo, every day whether it was sunny or windy, sleeting or scorching, foggy or frosty. Her walking boots lived by the door with her sturdy stick.
Which was why Rolo found the couple stuck in their car in a snowdrift on the way to hospital with no signal for their phones.
Kitty Gilthorpe was born practical. Before you could say ‘got it sorted’ she had them back to her cottage and the babe born on her kitchen floor.
It was a boy and they called him Rolo Gilthorpe Brown.
