Mandeville balloons

Well, following a nervous moment when we thought our balloons may have lost too much helium to launch, our worries proved unfounded and we had a spectacular release of red, white and blue balloons as part of our Opening Celebration on 1st June. Over the next few days some of our balloons travelled some quite astonishing distances, to Kent, France and Germany and we have had some lovely letters back from the people who have found them.
