This morning, we got an email that the Mayor had cancelled due to aversion to horse droppings.
Not to be deterred, a good 30 or so of us set off anyway. After all this is a tradition that pre-dates the Mayor. Frankly, Beatrice's tears and tantrum on hearing the 'cancellation' was about 10x more frightening than horse poo. Mother decided to go regardless.
Mucho fun, must do it again next year.
