It’s Christmas!!!


Jingle Bells – THIS THURSDAY – 14Dec23

Final social run of the year – Jingle Bell Run = Thursday 14th December.

Our annual jingle bell run will be this Thursday at 7pm. Meet outside The Bure Farm at 6.50pm fully decked in your finest festive outfits; with extra lights (it makes the ‘elf and safety people happy when we are all highly visable!)

We will then explore the bright lights of Bicester in one big group on a slower (so layers please if it’s particularly cold), chatty, festive adventure.

Obviously we’ll need to warm back up so we will head back to the Bure Farm for a defrost and festive tipple, from about 8pm, for those who just want to join for a Christmas drink after.

Friends, newcomers all welcome. No PB’s!

There’ll be no meet up at the Sports Centre but will be back there on the 21st.
