After an amazing run of having over 10 runners at each group run for what seems like a year...tonight we dipped below that but we made up for it with bundles of energy and enthusiasm!

We didn't scare off Mo last week so he was back to get another taste of the good life, great to have you along Mo! Keep coming back!

We also had Abi and Roshana back after ages away...we missed you tow, don't leave it so long this time ; - )

Super trusty and reliable Daryl, Phil, Karen, Charlotte and Hannah brought our lovely group to 9 and off we set towards the back of Bournemouth Station to hunt down some letter boxes.

Our route took us up some new roads for some of the gang so it was nice to do a little Bournemouth back road tourism. We started the flyering where we new we would get success and then slowly veered off to new areas, almost ending up at Karen's place for a cup of tea!!

With time running out we made the decision to make our way back to the start point...trying to avoid main roads and as a result adding maybe 500m to our route....that's nothing for some...especially** Karen** and Charlotte who rocked out 10 miles at the very hilly Larmer Tree Races this Saturday. Amazing effort....Charlotte even managed spin class the morning after....might need to find out what the Bourtons are having in their tea!?

We got back safe and sound and although we didn't take many photos this week....we promise we had a great time! Just too busy with lots of flyers to deliver!!!

Thank you Hannah for back marking again for us! Much appreciated!!

Next week we're doing a different flyer for the Cherry Tree nursery so come along and help us out!

Have a great week everyone!
