The team at Gloucestershire-based Bill Bird Shoes would like to say thank you to all the people who have been in touch since we appeared in Country Life magazine on January 31st.
We are delighted with the double page feature and photograph of our orthopaedic shoemaker, Bill Bird, which was taken by the talented photographer Richard Cannon at our Cotswolds workshop.
One of our clients said:
“As a reader of Country Life I was pleased to see that you have now gained the status of “living national treasure”.
I have always treasured your skill and kindness to me when I came to you for several pairs of boots. You continue to do great work, not least in helping people like myself, not only to walk but also to overcome the self consciousness that this kind of disability can bring. Long may you continue and I hope the pages of Country Life bring you more of the recognition you so deserve.”
For those of you who haven’t seen it, here is a digital version of the magazine feature. We hope you enjoy it. Living National Treasure Bill Bird
