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.
Prince’s Park is now fully restored. A very pleasant few hours work replacing 3 posts and one plaque. The Park seemed to be very popular with local dog walkers many of whom were interested in what we were doing.
Both Kersal courses are now in great shape. Kersal Moor – a bit of new mapping and some clearance of inconvenient vegetation. Kersal Dale – a new post W, a new plaque B, quite a bit of painting and vegetation clearance. Both parks have some interesting local history.
The orienteering course at Brookdale Park has been fully restored, and the Short Orange course slightly improved. The picture shows a post being repainted. Controls A,D,O and S/F are now plaques attached to RunEngland posts.
The course at Boggart Hole Clough has also been restored. Due to a bridge becoming dangerous Yellow and Light Green courses have been re-routed and control N moved across the lake; also posts V and Q have been moved to more accessible sites.
