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.

|14 Sep||The SOS Juniors took part in this year's Peter Palmers Relay at Lancing near Brighton on Sunday 13th September. The first leg was at 5.00am so bleary eyed we set Callum off. Well done to all the team for getting round without mp for the first time in several years! Congratulations to them all. Results are here, and more pictures here.
