New events for this summer..

We've still got 3 Park-O events to look forward to this summer in Bury St Edmunds & we're pleased to announce a new fun event - the Elm-O in Ipswich. Park-O, on Saturday afternoons, is aimed at families, juniors & adults who are newcomers to the sport - beginners & improvers, in other words. The Elm-O event is raising funds for the St Elizabeth Hospice - & will be good practice for urban orienteering, as well as giving you a different way to experience the art trail.
