Terry Smith, Puppet Reverend...
The Reverend Terry lives for God and the Church. He likes nothing more than speaking to the congregation; his flock. He doesn't have any spare time as he is 100% committed to his earthly duty. He is always on the lookout for new ways to raise much needed funds for the Church and associated buildings. He hosts weekly bingo, special interest quizzes and a bimonthly 'it's a knockout' - style assault course on the village green, for which he provides running commentary on his megaphone. He also runs the scouts and girl guides.
Howard Box-Grainger is the eldest of three brothers born into a cheese making dynasty, which imported the mysteries of Gouda production to the English countryside over 300 years ago. At the age of seven, he attempted to use a family portrait by William Hogarth to hang-glide from the roof of the family house; the painting was slightly damaged but Howie has never quite been the same. Howie's sons and ex-wives have all long since moved abroad, so Howie takes comfort in the company of his dogs Boxer and Boxer.
Daz Mayhew, Puppet Hippie...
Daz Mayhew has been a farmer since he was young but doesn't bother much with b*llocks like that because it's boring. It's the hands-on aspects of animal husbandry that interests him: pushing cows over when they're asleep, and putting mind-altering drugs in their feed because it makes them act funny. His facial hair is all his own work, from design to execution, and he is considering a career in that direction. He also enjoys cars and girls, especially when he's popped two of the blue ones.
