It was an early start due to road closures for the intrepid staff who made it into Head Office at NQP on Monday 7th July 2014.
Thousands of people crowded the streets of Saffron Walden as the Tour de France riders were given a heroes welcome.  Prior to the main riders came the Tour Caravan arriving in Saffron Walden about two hours before the competitors.
Some of the staff from Head Office walked down to see the world’s top cyclists pass by and cheer the riders.  Afterwards the cyclists then headed towards London on Britain’s final stage to finish on the Mall.

Exchange of Friendship Day Gifts like flowers, cards and wrist bands is a popular tradition of this occasion.

Why not mark the occasions by sending a card from the stunning Say the Word range. Now expanded from the original 16 designs to 22 made with friendship  laughter and happiness in mind.
