Katie’s social media skills are a welcome boost to By This River and will help us bring more insight to this rapidly changing landscape.



Toffee & Fizz

While they’re still brushing up on their comms skills, Fizz and Toffee prefer to spend most of the working day snoozing on their beds, except when we eat our lunch. Both rescues, the hounds have become more famous around Shepperton Studios than the rest of the team (something’s gone wrong there! - ed).
