The picture shows the Masterplan for Burrs Country Park. The first bullet under General Notes is “upgrade QR codes linked to orienteering trail”. Well, fear not, folks, we’ve just done it all by ourselves without being asked.
Our experiment of using the MOBO app on phones wasn’t a triumph (QR codes no longer functional, very few users), so we’ve replaced all the controls with new plaques with our own QR code in the middle. While we were at it, a couple of controls (22,23) have been removed due to traffic on the cobbled road, and a few controls (Y, 15, 24) moved to new positions.
New white and yellow courses are about to be unveiled at Lyme, along with some posts moved to more accessible sites.
Now the gardens have been re-opened, we’ve updated the (very old) map of the Hall Gardens at Wythenshawe.
A full tour of the Lyme course is just over 15km. Didn’t see any deer! … but the park currently closes at 4.30pm so I did manage to get locked in.
A Big Top is sitting between controls G and E at Princes Park Irlam – shows from Aug 11 to Aug 21.
Ice-cold milk and milkshakes from a dispenser in a kiosk opposite the park entrance. Very tasty and very popular with the locals.
Several patches of new trees have been planted in Brabyns Park. The actual trees are a lot smaller than their protectors!
Photo is new tree planting at Moss Bank Park. We are also aware of planting intentions at Brabyns Park and Bruntwood Park. Watch out for new pop-up forests everywhere!
Some serious bluebells near control Z at Tegg’s Nose.
Everywhere you look, green stuff is arriving at pace. Here’s some greenery in Bramhall Park.
