We had the perfect task for our birthday week - a very targeted (read small) leaflet drop for the City Council flood defence team, which very conveniently finished pretty much at the door of the Jolly Post Boys pub.

The leaflets are an offer of free water butts for residents of an area which has been affected by sewer flooding. The council has funding for 200 water butts, and the idea is that preventing/slowing rainfall reaching the drainage system will help prevent sewer flooding in future.

As we've been known to deliver nearly 1000 leaflets in an hour the 200-ish houses targeted by these leaflets took us no time at all, and with our run done pre-task we were able to regroup at the pub for drinks and food to mark GoodGym Oxford's 5th Birthday.
