DIARY: Fishburn Hedges wins the laser battle of supremacy in Trafalgar Square

Fishburn Hedges has always made the most of its Trafalgar Square location, hosting parties in the reception area which has a prime view of the pigeon/tourist mecca.

Fishburn Hedges has always made the most of its Trafalgar Square

location, hosting parties in the reception area which has a prime view

of the pigeon/tourist mecca.



The leaving do last week for founding directors Dale Fishburn and Andrew

Boys was no exception. The party was held on Thursday, the night of the

lighting ceremony for the square’s Norwegian Christmas tree. Determined

to make the evening one to remember, Fishburn Hedges associate director

Sarah Croom-Johnson secretly arranged for ’Goodbye Dale and Andrew’ to

be beamed along the full length of Nelson’s column, just after the

lights went on.



While most onlookers assumed Dale and Andrew were a couple of Norwegian

lumberjacks, Fishburn himself got rather excited. He said: ’It was a

complete surprise to all of us. I spotted it first, and I think some of

my colleagues, in their normal kind way, thought I was rather

over-reacting to the excitement of the Christmas tree lights going

on.’



Meanwhile, a few puzzled police officers tried to cart off the guerrilla

laser artists who, being used to this sort of thing - they were

responsible for projecting ’Free Tibet’ onto the Chinese embassy -

seemed to be the only people who actually knew what was going on.



They apparently informed the police, quite erroneously and without the

slightest hesitation, that the projection had been made on behalf of one

of the Christmas lights sponsors, Fishburn Hedges.
