Hello blog readers, and welcome to our page!
We are Lily Abigail and Alma Ruth, resident holy gerbils of Forton Vicarage.
Our first full day in the Parish was the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 8th December 2008.

In the meantime, why not check out our favourite flick, Gerbils of the Caribbean:
Well, the Vicar has finally worked out how to use YouTube. She needs a few lessons in keeping the camera still, but here we are in glorious almost-technicolour:
