Preparing for a new course at Mirrlees Fields.
Post H replaced with a new R at Reddish Vale. Plaque T replaced with post U at Urmston Meadows.
A working party to purge missing posts put 3 posts in at Chesham Woods, 2 at Nuttall Park and 1 each at Moss Bank and Queens Park Bolton. The picture is Queens Park Bolton, post G.
The Dove Stone courses have been updated:
post P has been moved to a place away from unpleasant litter
post EE has been moved away from bracken
post BB has been moved below the fence
Picture shows a hard-earned lunch stop.
A bit miserable yesterday, but we managed to survey a number of changes around Binn Green and the rhododhendron clearances across the water.
With great reluctance, the committee have decided to give up on maintaining the courses at Bowlee Community Park.
The orienteering course and map at Hough End have been brought fully up to date. The new Leisure Centre is now mapped, and missing posts replaced.
Courses at Burnage Rugby Club and Reddish Vale have been restored to completeness. (Except that control H at Reddish has disappeared in the middle of a housing development and we’ll have to decide what to do when it is finished!)
The Blackleach orienteering course is now (almost) fully restored, painted and generally gardened. One post (I) has gone missing since the last visit, so will have to be fixed another time. The main photo has been updated to show just how blue the lake can be on a lovely winter’s morning.
Urmston Meadows and Longford Park now restored to completeness. The photo doesn’t show the elusive post Y at Longford Park.
