Sauntering — "What's that?" I hear you ask. And well you might, because it's a word I made up just a few hours ago!

Our BB Boys enjoy Orienteering, running around the Commons looking for hidden markers. But there's no reason why a saunter shouldn't achieve the same enjoyment, albeit in a longer timescale!

So, as an experiment, I intend to lay out a short course on Kingsley Common, and invite anyone who fancies a walk to join me. The extremely detailed large-scale map that helps us to find the hidden markers will be explained, and we can all walk together to find the first few, before perhaps having a go to find some more, as individuals or pairs.

Does that sound interesting? Then join me at the car park at Kingsley Pond (next to the Cricketers pub) on Friday 15th December at 10am. We'll then take our cars on to the nearby starting point.

If you could let me know you'll be there, that would be helpful — it means I'll have the right number of maps! And if you would like a lift, please get in touch.

It should be an enjoyable saunter, with a purpose (of sorts!).
