Ash Dieback disease (Chalara faxinea) has been identified in Northumberland so if we are to continue orienteering we need to begin taking measures to prevent our spreading it by accident.
Please read the advice from the British Orienteering Environmental Officer and as a minimum please arrive at ALL EVENTS with your shoes and clothing clean of possible spore contamination. We will be providing rudimentary facilities to clean shoes after you’ve completed your run.
