Club Coniston

Club weekend in Coniston

Mon 3 Dec

Picture of some of the AIRE members who attended a recent club weekend in Coniston. After practising contours and simplification at Dale Park on Saturday we braved the torrential rain to put skills into practice at Holme Fell on Sunday. A challenging photo 'O' game c/o the Parkers kept us occupied during the evening. Thanks Dave Alcock for organising a great weekend!

Beckett Park Mass Start

Youngsters enjoy orienteering at the School Games!

Tue 27 Mar

Today saw forty teams (160 children) take part in the Schools' orienteering final at the School Games held in Beckett Park. Junior Development Officer Simon Martland has been working with children across the five local districts and held qualifying competitions in parks and schools. The children very much enjoyed their orienteering and there was very positive feedback from the accompanying teachers and adults. The photos capture something of the excitement of the event.
