It’s great to be back! There are few events to come out and shout about in January and February (and to be honest off season break is welcome, but on a sunny spring morning like yesterday’s it was great to be one more in my livery, crying in the streets to raise awareness of the upcoming national “wear a hat day” in aid of brain tumour research.

On Friday 27th March people are being asked to wear brightly decorated hats to support this very worthwhile cause.

I was accompanied through the morning by Doug from Ascot Top Hats who wore a natty pink top hat. He also brought along some pink ostrich feathers for me to add to my tricorn… As if I needed to be any more visible. We had a fun morning going up and down Peascod Street, handing out leaflets which hopefully will lead to many more people joining in with National Wear a Hat Day.
