Thanks to funding provided by Aiming High a new Permanent Orienteering Course (POC) is now available at the Avon Valley nature reserve, next to Five Rivers Health and Wellbeing Centre, Salisbury.

Orienteering provides an exciting challenge in the countryside for both children and adults to find points in the landscape using only a map and a compass.

Orienteering at Five Rivers Health and Wellbeing Centre is an outdoor activity that everyone can enjoy.

The courses on the orienteering map have been designed by Sarum Orienteers to ensure you make the most of exploring the parkland in the grounds of the Centre.

Orienteering is a great activity because you can -
•Compete against others to improve your skills
•Enjoy the fresh air and countryside

There will be several possible courses to choose from, including two courses designed for people in wheelchairs.

The courses are all located in the pleasant open countryside behind the centre and are open for anyone to try. A course consists of a start point, a series of control sites that are marked by numbered circles on the map in the order they are to be visited, and a finish. All the checkpoints or control sites are marked with wooden posts. Each post is marked by a number and a red and white marker.

All you need to do is download a map and information leaflet or pick one up from Five Rivers Health and Wellbeing Centre and have a go.


For more information about this permanent course or other local events please go to the Sarum Orienteers’ webpage at www.sarumo.org.uk or email chairman@sarumo.org.uk
