After a brief catch up and Mel proudly showing us she still fitted into her GoodGym top, for now, Team Bump set off (with incognito run buddy Luke) to map Bellfarm estate, which turned out to have loads of benches. Team Hopalong (for once not including me) set out walking for the Huntington section, reconfirming only the benches on the old map. Team Nettle took the riverbank and around Nestle, confirming there are no benches (except a big bus stop), no footpaths where we thought there were footpaths, and plenty of nettles.

The rain shower didn't put us off and we all managed to keep the maps dry (Vicky by shoving it up her top apparently 😂). Mission accomplished, we all set off home for our well earned teas.
