On Sunday 23 October, 78 took part in today’s ‘Treasurer Hunt Fun Run’ from The Harvester at Willen East Lake. The run which replaced the normal Sunday Run was a test event for a bigger event next year to help celebrate the MK 50.

The letters found were R; O; U; N; D; A; B; O; U; T; S. (If you know the word these letters make, answers on a postcard to MGB, Martin and Richard).

A special thanks to my team of helpers, Sophie, Helen, Carol, Riitta, Brenda, Sheila but special thanks to my wing man, Ian Stevens for making the event a tremendous success. Many thanks to the staff at The Harvester for looking after us with delicious rolls.

We hope you all enjoyed it, especially the memento. Judging by the laughter and feed back, you all did.
