We gathered at Flirt Cafe this evening and soon found out that they were closing at 7pm...mainlty to annoy us....or maybe it was a test....I think we failed the test.....I think they failed it too.... Either way, we had Daryll back after ages off so really we didn't mind about Flirt Cafe. And we had Neil's car to leave our bags in and that was more than enough!

Tonight we were tasked with a flyer drop for Autism Wessex to help promote their Summer BBQ fundraiser on the 27th of July. And knowing that Hannah wasn't too keen on the route to Boscombe, we switched it to the more suburban route of visiting Westbourne.

You'd be surprised at how many houses and building don't actually have letter boxes!!! Don't blame them really. Our route took us to Allumhurst Road and roads leading off it. We saw new roads and had considerable house envy by the end of it. Some really lovely places on display...according to Caprice who has a thing for Right Move...they were in in the £800,000 range.....

We split up into two groups and weaved our way around all the little side roads and explored as much as possible. Only a few barking dog encounters.

In no time we had managed to regroup and delivered almost all of the 500 leaflets we had, so we headed down to the prom for some photos and some extra KMs.

We headed back up through the gardens and those that didn't need Neil's Cloakrooms services headed to the new Urban Garden bar for our social meet up and the rest split up into a little starburst route. Some going to their cars, others home to make Spag bowls and then the rest to get things out of Neil's car to then head back down to have some drinks in nice surroundings.

A really nice evening hanging out with very pleasant people, doing good in the community and getting fit and sweaty at the same time!

Next week we are Hope Housing.....sign up....here. It's going to be pretty random but lots of fun!

Thank you John for the title....Amber, hope you enjoyed your dinner xx
