April training session - next Wednesday, all systems go for Smart Phone Orienteering! Visiting orienteers welcome. Thanks to Sarah Dunn and Scottish Orienteering Development for help in getting this set up.
Our monthly sessions provide an opportunity for club members and potential members to meet and train together to develop skills and fitness. Activities will vary from month to month but will typically last for an hour and will include a range of simple activities that will be flexible so as to suit all ages, levels of experience and fitness. Please note: these sessions are not coaching per se and children attending will need to remain under the close supervision of their parent or carer.

Safety and Risk
A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser, but participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event.
Our forests are at risk from tree pests and diseases. These can dramatically affect the health of our trees, upsetting the delicate ecosystem balance and devastating large areas of woodland.
Pests and diseases hitch a ride in mud and debris on shoes, paws and tyres, ending up in new forests. Here, they can spread rapidly in environments with no natural resilience.
