March MapRun Challenge
This month we visit Crystal Palace Park in London Borough of Bromley with its remnants of Victorian ideas of prehistory. It is parkland orienteering with three course options on offer. These activities will remain open for as long as necessary to give all club members an opportunity to participate given current stay local restrictions. Full details and instructions are here

We have received the very sad news that long standing member Don Beven passed away in late December, aged 94. Don was a club member for many, many years, experiencing orienteering until his early 80s. Since then he was awarded Honorary Membership of the club. Don has been described as a legend within the Scout movement, having been involved in Scouting in Bexley for over 60 years, most recently as District Chairman. Our sympathies extend to his family.
