Ash Dieback Disease (Chalara fraxinea) and other Invasive Non-Native Species (INNS)
Advice from British Orienteering is here.
A summary for those attending events -
The Food and Environment Research Agency and the Animal and Plant Health Agency advice can be summarised as:
We should all be checking our clothing and equipment before leaving the car park to ensure that there is no visible plant material either on our shoes or our clothing. If there is any plant material it should be removed and left on site. We should also knock off any soil or leaf litter.
Once home thoroughly clean your footwear and clothing and then leave it to dry for as long as possible. Many of the INNS are able to survive in damp corners for very long periods of time, but are less able to survive if the equipment is thoroughly dried.
Congratulations to Kate Bowie-Britton our first Jack Petchey Award winner. Kate was nominated for her achievement overcoming personal physical limitations to make significant progress within the sport over the last two years.
Kate was presented with her award by Junior Captain, Josh Partridge, at our Mini Series event at Great Notley Country Park.
Kate has decided she would like the club to spend the £250 achievement grant on a SOS juniors team building day including orienteering and other activities.
