15th Boadicea Run
Beautiful weather and a fantastic turn out of 86 cars made for a successful day which saw us raise over a £1000 between the two local charities.

As always these runs don't happen without a lot of people planning, preparing and generously giving up their time.
So thanks needs to go to Tony Davis for preparing the route, to Jean, Peter and Symon for their behind the scenes organisation and to Stella, Brenda, John, Colin, Teresa and Mike for helping out on the day. Also a special thanks to Geoff for his work digitising the route ready for printing.

The next thank you must go to the sponsors for their generous donations - I hope you will continue to support these local businesses.

The final BIG thank you goes to everyone that entered - without you there wouldn't be a Boadicea Run!

Some photos have been added to the photo gallery for this year - hopefully there will be some more coming through to add later in the summer.

And finally, next years Boadicea has been provisionally booked for Sunday 17th May 2015. More information when we know it.
