A last minute replacement for our planned riverside task, we were tasked with helping Love Luton distribute road closure notices to a bunch of streets that will be affected by the upcoming half marathon.

We had a quick warm up and then started posting letters to all the businesses and residences around the town centre, jogging leapfrog style all the way up Park Street and back again all the way to St Georges Square.

A few hundred letters posted in under an hour, with a team effort, a bit of jogging and a few staircases, it's actually good fun and a welcome break from last weeks long distance run!

Love the title - and I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this mission. Thank you to David for arranging the weather so that we didn't get soaked, and for the excellent coaching from our experienced posties. :-)

Leafleting always sounds dull as anything but when you inject some energy and do it as a team, it is actually fun! Glad you enjoyed it!
