Many thanks to all who helped on and before the Worden Park fundraising activity on Sunday.  I think everyone concerned was happy with the outcome, which would not have been the case without all your expertise .  The weatherman was kind to us as well. Peter Knott

Early Days-before leg cover !

Our friend and founder member, Maurice Dean, sadly passed away in hospital on the 1st August 2018 after a long and brave battle against Multiple Sclerosis.

He was born in Leyland on the 4th June 1932 and when his mother died young in the early years of World War Two he was brought up in the Harris Orphanage in Preston.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) An extra event and request for help

On Sunday 2nd September at Worden Park Leyland I am putting on an open 'Come and Try it' orienteering activity day for the MS Society Chorley and Leyland Group. I would be most grateful for any help any of our members can give me on the day. (Start times are 11am to 3pm). I need help with registration, results, start, 1st Aid, instruction and help for novices and some patrolling of the park.
There will be an unusual course for you to enjoy as well as the novice courses.
