Thanks to everyone who helped me inflate and tag 138 balloons, especially Alice. No doubt Heathrow radar picked this up as the balloon release didn't go exactly according to plan! There was a gale blowing and a small vortex twisted everything up as I left the boathouse – giving them out individually was impossible. They seemed to be breaking up a bit as they gained height. Good luck to everyone who took a numbered balloon ticket. If your balloon makes it the furthest I'll treat you to tea, cake and half an hour on the boating lake. Can't say fairer than that can I? Watch this space. Props to Judith for the bottom image.
