A Big Thank You to Flirt, Mint Leaf & Bourne Free

It is with out a doubt, the Triangle area would not be the same with out FLIRT!

Bournemouth is Changing, and the Triangle is leading the way with a collection of independent businesses and local folk setting the standard for things to come. We are currently witnessing a ripple effect with the epicentre located directly under FLIRT.

With out the genuine care of both Peter and Rob, The Triangle just would not be the same. Their quirky, understated, flamboyant attitude towards local culture, makes The Bournemouth Triangle an interesting and better place. We don’t just like you – quite frankly we love you! Love The Triangle

We would also like to take the time to thank the Mint Leaf Restaurant

Mint Leaf put on an distictive networking evening on Wednesday 30th April. Raj and Josh did an excellent job of hosting the event, providing another venue for discussions about the area and our community. They also put together an excellent spread of food for all guests to sample, which was a delicious and exciting addition to the night. Thank you.

We would like to thank everyone who atteneded, also Cllr Dave Smith who has pleged support and funding toward the ongoing Triangle efforts. It is fantastic to see so many people from our community coming together, meeting and communicating to achieve common goals. Thank you ALL!

Last and by no means least, we would like to thank BOURNE FREE.
