3 nights ago I was sitting at my laptop still reeling at the fact that the Mayor of St Albans had rung me up whilst I was sorting the tea out. The Team Honk baton was tucked up safely in Hemel Hempstead and I was panicking wildly utterly prepared for the St Albans stint of the #teamhonkrelay. Seriously, what could possibly go wrong? Bike rides coming in from Hemel Hempstead, Honksters in pyjamas, 2 schools, the best part of 750 children and adults, Buzz Lightyear on a Scooter and a train to catch… plus the presence of the Mayor of St Albans (who comes with her own word document of how she needs to be looked after, addressed etc – no pressure then).
Despite the hail, I needn’t have worried. The parents and friends at Mandeville had turned out in force, the hall was full of children well wrapped up and then the Mayor bounced in – wearing her Sport Relief Onesie, complete with Mayoral chains. Annie Brewster, you rock.
