Bea - Bewaldeth or "Bea" as she is known in the office, is Neville's partner-in-crime and enjoys lunchtimes no matter what is on the menu, heel-biting whilst you are running and barking at motorbikes... when she isn't advising us on what steps to take next that is! We should also add, in case you haven't guessed, that Bea is Neville's dog!
