Don't forget this month's midweek training evening will take place on Wednesday 6 February.
Midweek training. A new area, never previously trodden by an orienteer's foot! All off road. Mapped just a few weeks ago. Training will take the form of "score" orienteering - with a twist. Collecting all the controls will involve a 4km run but you can do less, depending on how long you want to be out and on ability. Suitable for all levels. Bring a torch. A pen may also be useful.

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.
