Supporting Beatrix Potter's new publication
Arnison Heelis are very excited to hear about the book ‘Kitty in Boots’ written by Beatrix Potter and due to be published for the first time later this year as part of the celebrations in 2016 marking the 150th anniversary of Beatrix Potter’s birth.
The Heelis branch of ‘Arnison Heelis’ based in Appleby and previously Heelis Solicitors, has close links to Beatrix Potter. Miss Potter became Mrs Heelis when she married William Heelis who spent many years in Long Marton, Appleby where his father was a rector. Many of William Heelis’ family settled in Appleby and two of Beatrix Potter’s brothers in law, Edward Alexander Heelis and George Heelis, were owners of Heelis Solicitors, then E & E A Heelis.
We are sure that ‘Kitty in Boots’ written over 100 years ago will be just as popular as Beatrix Potter’s other magical stories.
