Returning to Orienteering

With the latest guidance from the Government it is now possible to introduce some solo orienteering.  However, there are a number of actions that the club must take before we can allow members to take part in these activities.  These include getting the permission of the various landowners.
We will try and move forward as fast as possible, please be patient and check the club web site and Facebook page for updates.
