SKIP­TON Build­ing So­ci­ety in Che­sham is open­ing its doors to ac­tively welcome cus­tomers of the four legged kind into its branches.

As part of a new ‘dogs al­lowed’ pol­icy, cus­tomers are able to bring their trusty com­pan­ions into branch with them.

Mr Bur­ley’s ca­nine com­pan­ion is a 13-yearold French bull­dog called Jody.

She is blind due to an ill­ness and re­lies on Mr Bur­ley to be her guide hu­man. It’s es­sen­tial that Jody is with him wher­ever he goes.
