We are back! Normal service has been resumed. Thank you for your patience.
Our apologies for recent service unavailabilities. We have had some drama transferring to a new hosting service, and hopefully now all will be stable again.
Another beautiful Autumn day.
Post N replaced at Brabyns Park (photo). Everything painted and plaque’d at Bruntwood Park. Changes to path network mapped at Mirrlees Fields.
A couple of posts replaced at Queens Park – W moved out of the deep undergrowth. Post U replaced at Leverhulme. Couple of posts checked at Darcy Lever.
Post TT confirmed missing at Crompton’s Lodges. Picture is loads of birds at Crompton’s Lodges.
Longford Park is now set up for mobile phone orienteering using the HippsommApp.
Picture is my phone’s record of this afternoon’s pootle round all the controls, adding plaques, painting and gardening at the same time.
Gorse Hall – postwatcher Alison and friend hard at work – post F replaced, and post Z moved to a better site.
Dove Stone – reports coming in that the dam and car park work is finished so all is back to normal
Wythenshawe Hall – belated news that the Gardens have been re-opened and so that is back to normal too.
From the dawn of GMOA time, we’ve charged £1 per map, irrespective. We have now switched to a policy where the price of a map reflects a combination of costs we incur and contributions from the individual park authorities.
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.
