A Big Top is sitting between controls G and E at Princes Park Irlam – shows from Aug 11 to Aug 21.
Rotted post J replaced at Urmston Meadows, and QR plaques completed. New post I installed at Princes Park Irlam, in a new position, with bushes remapped around it (see photo), and QR plaques completed. Silver Springs map also updated.
A pleasant day of joblets in Trafford – Princes Park Irlam, Sale Water Park, Longford Park. Photo is post K at Sale – which raises the serious question of what we should do about posts that disappear in balsam and brambles for half the year ? Moving the posts to somewhere veg-free probably reduces the orienteering challenge significantly, but leaving them there is pretty unkind to people trying to find them. Across all our parks, the issue of rampant vegetation seems to be getting worse almost everywhere.
Picture is Dave McCann digging a very fine hole at Kersal Dale – now restored to completeness. Also, Prince’s Park, Irlam fixed and improved, and missing post J restored (as a plaque) at Daisy Nook.
