In fact, their celebrity status has reached such heights, they’ve even been photographed on board a flight with Edinburgh based trade supplier, Stevenswood, and enjoyed a week-long holiday in Wales with software and IT specialist Windowlink UK – not to mention a VIP trip out to Derbyshire County Cricket Club.
