Somerfield's press team found themselves under siege at the weekend - from small children.
Members of the press office, and one or two senior management types, were heard to be muttering less than endearing comments about the tykes wanting free balloons from the retailers' stand at the Bristol Balloon Fiesta.
Not everyone wanted a balloon, though. Some preferred the free fruit samples being handed out. These went down a storm with everyone, except one child who was more interested in a trial test, sucking the pineapple chunks before putting them back on the tray.
