The second half of our monthly visit to Surbiton Farmers' Market and a celebration of a 50th GOOD DEED milestone for Rob! It's always such a pleasure to run with you Rob and I'm so pleased we could be there to celebrate with you.

We demonstrated how efficient we have become with these monthly market missions and quickly got to work with the bumble bee barrier removal.

Barriers all taken down we moved on to offer our help to store holders, however it seems they were all keen to head off for the weekend and the majority of their packing was already complete! We used our remaining time on some PR chats with a local running group in Surbiton and hope to see them at a group run soon.

All that was left was to head off to the second half of our Kingston 1st Birthday celebrations at Victoria Recreation Ground where our red shirts attracted lots more PR attention (unfortunately it was when we were guiltily standing in the queue for the ice cream van!)
