Uncle Edward Mulberry is not really a new face in the village. He has often in the past visited his brother, Elmar, and his family and is quite familiar with the village and its people.
Till recently Edward lived in Oxbridgeshire with his daughter Martha Mulberry. Martha’s mother and Edward’s wife died when Martha was a little girl. Martha however decided to go to a very distinguished boarding school from which she accepted a scholarship. As his parents, George and Mildred, also resides in Oxbridgeshire he could leave Martha with a peaceful mind as he knew she is in safe hands with his parents near.
He now is a permanent resident of Sugarbush Valley and the village is just what he needs, peaceful and quiet. Edward mends and restores vintage and rare toys. He spends hours at his workbench to ensure that the broken toys are as good as new. Lots of useful tools, paints and books about toys can be found in his small work room. Since Edward moved to the village many of the parcels that Postman Pete Petite receives daily is from adult collectors all over the globe, who believes that Edward will be able to save their beloved toys.
He lives in a small treehouse next to his brother's log cabin, on the outskirts of the village.
Like many others Bobby Roberts came to Sugarbush Valley by chance. He mentioned to his old friend, Edward Mulberry, that he was tired of The Big City and all its criminals. He desired a peaceful life, where his biggest concern would be naughty children and rescuing stray pets. The saying goes that you must be careful what you wish for, as that is now exactly the life Bobby is living, but he is loving every moment.
Though PC Bobby Roberts looks quite intimidating and fear-provoking, he is actually a jolly nice policeman. He always has a friendly word for everyone he meets and helps those in distress without hesitation, except if they've been naughty, of course!
