Flack

1. Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton walked a 150-metre high wire at Battersea Power Station in a stunt organised by events company Industri Management on 28 February for next week's Comic Relief.

Drawing on the lineage of fellow Blue Peter daredevils John Noakes and Peter Duncan, Skelton survived the ordeal - although isn't using a harness technically cheating?

2. Pretty Green has welcomed its newest and youngest team member to head up a new youth division. Previously on a nine-month intensive growth and development programme as part of the agency's vision to be a 'Brand Incubator', Skyler Bay Stringer will be reporting directly to agency founder (and father), Mark Stringer.

3. The PR team at The Camping and Caravanning Club joined other staff members to support The Woodland Trust's 'Wear your Wellies to Work' Day. The 4 March event was part of a fundraising drive to enable the trust to plant trees and provide wildlife habitats. It's the office cleaners Flack feels sorry for.
