Our Next Events:

Haverhill

19th June 2019

We are holding an additional activity in East Town Park, Coupals Road, Haverhill, in conjunction with Haverhill Gateway Club as part of Mencap's Learning Disability Week. It will be a "Score" event, i.e. find as many checkpoints as you can in 30 minutes, so quite suitable for beginners. Entry will be free & you may start at any time between 19:00 & 20:00. Electronic timing will be used (SI cards may be borrowed).

The nearest postcode is CB9 7UW - the park is to the west of the golf club on Coupals Road & parking is available.

Gunton Denes & Dip Farm

23rd June 2019

The second event in our Simon Peck Summer Series 2019 takes us back to the seaside at Lowestoft. The mapped area covers the beach & the clifftop, so you'll be navigating across dunes, on cliff paths, across open areas & through woodland & nature reserves. Beginners are welcome to "Come & try orienteering" & there will also be longer courses for the more experienced. The map will be at the scale of 1:7500 & the courses will range from 2.5 to 5Km approximately, with some steep sections on the cliff paths. Advice, help & training will be available, as usual.
