Don’t you just love the word community? It feels all inclusive, doesn’t it?
A group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.
– Oxford English Dictionary
In this instance, it’s a group of people having a particular characteristic in common – which is a love for being physically active and sharing it with others, even if occasionally we might embarrass ourselves doing it (ok, that might just be me) and that’s the ethos and plan of Decathlon (to share physical activity with others, not embarrass ourselves – that’s purely a personal choice, or can’t be helped in my case).
I was invited along to do a Scavenger Hunt by Decathlon at their Surrey Quays store – and of course, I jumped at the chance, who wouldn’t want to do a treasure hunt? (I am just a big kid really!)
I travelled there with the lovely Helen on a very pleasant evening, where we were greeted by Bella at the Decathlon offices and got to briefly chat and mingle with the other bloggers before being sorted into our teams. I made up a third of the green team with the lovely Sabine and delightful Bethan.
