The Lord Mayor's Parade, Eye, Suffolk - 24th June 2018

It's the Lord Mayor's parade in Eye, and this year it's Harry's turn to march around as part of Beavers. Before that, there's a 28-mile round trip bike ride to the Hopton Vine. Oh, and the the bizarre "installation" made of barrels is finally floated into position on the Serpentine in Hyde Park, London, after several months in the making - as seen on the way to work.
