The tick season is underway!

Love spending time outdoors? Activities like camping, hiking, golfing, and gardening? You could be at risk of contracting Lyme disease.

Lyme disease is a serious illness which can be spread to humans from the bite of an infected tick. Each year, more cases of Lyme disease are being diagnosed in the United Kingdom, as infected ticks are known to exist in many regions across the country.

What are ticks?
Ticks are small spider-like animals, which are almost invisible to the bare eye. Because of this, the ticks become even more dangerous: most of the time you discover a tick after it has bitten the skin and has sucked itself with blood. That is why it is important to check yourself after you have been in grass, bushes, or heath.

The British Orienteering 50th Anniversary Award

For 50 years orienteering in the United Kingdom has been developed, nurtured, promoted and led with passion and dedication by a succession of volunteer sports men and women. Between them, they have brought British orienteers from small beginnings to the front of the world stage as well as spreading their sport throughout the country at every level and every age.

As a representative of his many colleagues and fellow visionaries over the 50 years and in recognition of his unflagging personal zeal and unstinting contribution to orienteering throughout that time, the recipient of the British Orienteering 50th Anniversary Award is:

Chris James (NGOC)

The award will be presented at the prize giving of the Scottish 6 Days 2017.
