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 tick season is now here!

New year…… New sport!

Get into Orienteering!

It’s a new year… So why not try a new sport?

Orienteering is an exciting adventure sport suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Participants have to navigate their way between a series of checkpoints (called controls) shown on the map. There’s no set route, you find your own way using the map.

What are you waiting for? Orienteering is a great way to spend more time with your family and friends. Throughout 2018 you can take part in local orienteering activities or events. UK events are listed here. You can contact your local orienteering club who will be happy to welcome you. This is a great way to meet new people and make new friends. UK orienteering clubs are listed here.

Permanent Orienteering Courses are also a great way to get outside and go orienteering with family and friends. A great way to keep in touch and chat whilst you explore outdoors at a time and place that suits you all. Permanent Orienteering courses are listed here.

Xplorer is also suitable for young families looking to get into orienteering and take place across the year. Xplorer activities are listed here.

Are you interested in orienteering, but don’t know enough about the sport?
