County Orienteering Competition

The 2009 orienteering competition took place at Astley Park, Chorley on the 24 June 2009.

Eleven of our Scouts took up the challenge and enjoyed navigating their way round the delightful surroundings of the park, some with more success than others, on a beautiful warm, sunny evening. A bit different to last year's rain and mud!

Congratulations to the team on winning the inter-troop trophy again.
